What kind of suspension do you have on the car? But 18x9.5 is comming close to the point where you have to start worring about rubbing and rolling fenders....But I run it with out....... But what suspension?

Fitment depends on the wheel's offset and estimated tire width. However, 19x9.5 is really pushing it. You'll either rub on the fender, strut or possibly both. You will definately have to roll the fenders (hard to do with 05+ STi's) and will most likely have to modify them even further.

Heck my 18x8.5 +44 w/235's rub when I have people in the back, so you could imagine what would happen with 19x9.5s.

^^+1, have fun trying to get those wheels on your STI. You'll rub for sure, i think the only way you won't if you widen your fenders a bunch
