You may need a minor fender lip roll but, they do fit

It means pounding the inner lip up. They should fit.

Hi Guys

When we developed the 18'' package for the P1 we started with 8x18 (with PZero 225/35/18) these hit. we moved to 7.5x18(with PZero 225/35/18) and had no problems on our test car. Since then we have had one or two cars (out of 1000 remember) were there was a slight touch.

Can't comment on other tyre types / size.

Cheers

Simon

You will not have any fitment or rubbing problems as if you get the right tire size. The Impreza P1(GC8 body) by prodrive has 18" P1 rims as stock.

Didn't the Impreza P1 have 17" stock and 18" as option?

The P1 owners were selling their 17" on scoobynet, because the optional 18" wheels were not dealer replacements but add-on options.

Btw Luke, got a Picture of the Silver P1s? Tirerack website doesn't seem to show the silver picture.
