Default What offset for 18x8.5

I looked and looked and couldn't find anything so I'm posting! I want to get some 18x8.5 but not sure on the offset? They're going on a 02 WRX and I'm rolling the fenders so that's not an issue. Thanks for any help!

if you are rolling the fenders you can do a pretty agressive offset. i am running a 35 offset on my car. it all depends on tire size and type/brand also. even though two tires are the same size, due to the construction they can be different widths. good luck. let me know if you have any questions.
here is a link to a post i made a while ago:

I'm running 18 x 8.5 - +48 offset - 235-40-18 - but if you want to keep the speedo accruate you should go with 225-40-18.

thanks. you shouldn't have to roll your fenders then. mine rarely rub. i rolled my fronts. and the car is very low. lower than in the pictures now. if they rub, it is if i hit a bump while cornering hard at low speeds. good luck

I ran a 18x8.5 with +42 offset. I was also running 255/35/18 tires with no rubbing and no fender rolling. This was on a 05 STi.
