I'm Looking into getting some 18x8.75 +33.
As for tires im not into the stretched look so I was wondering if I should get a 235/40 or a 245/40
What would I have to do to my 2007 WRX Sedan TR to get them to fit?
I like functionality and i'm not looking to slam it. Maybe half an inch wheel gap. Seem reasonable? I need to know what kind of things I need to do to my fenders for these to fit.

Thanks dude. How do you guys keep your fender liners from just sagging once the front is rolled? Would like to avoid doing the pull as I don't know how to do that also

I just take mine out and make a piece of sheet metal and weld it up there

How stiff is your suspension? I would run the 245/40 personally but you will have to do a roll on the fenders

I have BC BR Coils, i'm thinking -2 to -2.5 camber all around and a roll with 245/40? Does that sound about right?

Sounds about right. I'm worried about when turning aggressively though, they might rub. What sway bars? I ran my 18x9 et20 w/ 245/40 at -2.5 but I also had 27mm sway bars on the tightest they would go

18x9.5 +35 with a 235/40/18. stock struts with H&R sport springs. They rub in the rear. I pulled the 1/4 panels out at least an inch. How can i get more camber to fit these without rubbing with people in the back?

2012 WRX
RCE Black Springs
Koni Yellows in 2010 struts housing (supposed to make the drop a bit lower).

I want to run 18x9.5 with a 265/35/18. Open to ideas on what offset to run and if I am going to have problems with the front fenders? I know the rears will need to be rolled.

You haven't trimmed the rear bumper bracket I bet.

And at those sizing a and offsets you're gunna rub with people in the back. Period.

year: 2006
model: WRX Sedan
wheel model: OZ Ultraleggerra
wheel size/offset: 17x8 +48
tire brand/model: Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position
tire size: 235/45/R17 or 225/45R17
suspension: Stock (for now, see below) alignment: -1.2 camber F and R
fender
mods: None
spacers: No

From looking around Im pretty sure these should both fit at stock ride height. However, would I rub with a mild drop, maybe 1 to 1.25" on Mach V springs or something similar?

Thanks, just want to confirm before buying.

18x8.5 with a 22mm offset would not fill up the wheel well nearly as much on your body style as it would on a GD chassis.
Was there any pulling to achieve this look? or just a roll

It's probably been asked before,


I just picked up a 2008 STi It's sitting on stock suspension at the moment, I'm eventually picking up Coils but for now I've been looking at wheels. XXR 522 18 x 9.5 +38 offset Am I going to have any fitment issues? With the offest or anything? Also, what tire do you guys reccomend for a 9.5" wheel with little to no stretch. Thanks in Advance.

^ I'm not extremely knowledgable on that body style, but a buddy of mine had the same specs lowered quite a bit and he was running 235/40. We had to do a good roll but no pull, but for a meaty tire you will likely have to pull

i have 18x9.5 +40 offset varrstoen wheels, my car is on stock shocks and dropped on tein springs. i Know my fenders need to be rolled. I'm not sure whether to go with 225/40/R18 or 235/40/R18 I don't want to rub
Thinking of going with Falken tires as well
