Your Subaru emblem is bigger too (check mine out) https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-D...1-fix-1600.jpg
Did you use the one from stock grill or something?

You should be able to get away with 18x8 higher offset wheels with 225/40/18 tires. Depending on your drop it may rub a little, but I don't think so.

I'm on 18x8 +48 with a 225/40r18 tire and lowered on Swift Spec-R and I didn't need to modify the fenders at all.

245 or 255 /40 fills out our fenders really well they *should* be mounted next week on Tuesday. I only have 2 wheels the others I had to buy new and should arrive Monday!

I see your in Mass, when do you plan on putting your wheels on the car for the season? I have been up in northern vermont at college for the past couple years and dont even remember when the snow/ salt will stop around ct
