Default Wagon Wide Body Question

I am thinking about doing a wide body front end conversion in the front and rolling the fenders in the rear. If I were to do this. What offset wheels would you suggest running to get rid of that nasty gap?

ugh...another. We don't know what fenders your getting so we have no idea how much wider the fenders will be. You could run a +20 18x6 it still wont be flush, so what size wheel do you want to run. And if your doing anything larger than wrx sedan front fenders its gonna look awful with just a rear roll and even pull. Thanks for yet another generic question that can be answered in a search.

i'm running stock sedan fenders on my wagon. there's A LOT more room up front now for wider wheels. i don't want to run staggered offsets, so i'll probably wind up running a 15 or 20mm spacer up front with my current 18x8 +48 wheels. I have yet to roll/pull my rears though. I run 17x8 +48 for track/auto-x (STX width limit) with no spacers.

If you do roll/pull the rears, you should be able to fit 18x8.5 +45 all around, and still have room for a ~10mm spacer up front.
