Default What all is needed to fit 255/35/18s with an 18x9 +35?

My new gforces will be coming in soon. I would like to run 255/35/18, and am interested what is needed to make them fit. I wont be slammed. Just lowered a bit on BC coilovers. Will fender rolling and some negative camber be enough? dont really wanna run more than -2 camber. Thanks for any help or suggestions!!

i didnt ask if it would be easy, or what your opinions were about the wheels and their size. So go post your useless information somewhere else where someone might actually give a ****. haha you must think your a badass. thanks for wasting space and time.

so you dont like being told that you will have issues trying to fit the wrong wheels????

sorry

i was young and dumb at one point a long time ago

i grew up and realized just how dumb i was a little less long ago and i dont do such dumb things anymore

because it just isnt(and wasnt) worth it

i know that now

so go ahead and struggle with something that costs a lot of $$$(both now and later) and gives no possible gain and may in fact be detrimental(possibly VERY detrimental) to many things associated with owning your car

btdt smarter now and wiser

some never get this far though

Oh boy. I am neither young, nor dumb. I know these wheels are not a plug and play solution for new wheels, but i am willing to do what it takes, and don't worry about what i spend my money on. You have no clue about my financial situation. What may be worth it to me may not be worth it to you, thats okay with me and i will not judge you because i could care less what you do to your car. So unless you want to tell me from personal experience the amount of camber i will need to run these wheels and tires, along with fender modifications, go post your superior knowledge in someone elses thread. I dont need it here. thanks

yeah right

then why even bother with a wrx or even an sti ?

the only reason i have one is that i wouldnt feel bad about balling it up

pretty dumb choice for a car if you have the means to drive something else and putting foolish wheels on one????

im a LOT smarter than THAT

these are NOT 'nice' cars

they are econoboxes with awd and turbos and the Impreza is the new kiddie car in any event in case you haddnt noticed and THAT is why I wont buy another one

anyway

have fun playing

I am running 18X9's with a +43 offset with 255's and have no rubbing issues what so ever and the fenders are untouched. If you ran approximately -2.25 degrees of camber in the rear you should be ok other wise you might need to roll.

OP u will never get a real good answer, because every one pulls,cuts,bends rear fenders different. Only you will know what it will take to make your setup work, and not go over -2 degrees of camber in the rear. Since i cant tell from your info if this an STI or wrx it could be much much harder if its a wrx since you dont have the over fender to cover any negative results of your fender work. So just do some pulling, put them on and go pull the crap out of them until they stop rubbing.

With coilovers, you shouldn't need much more than a fender roll. I would do a nice clean roll and then fit the tires. If you still don't have enough room, then look at adding a small amount of camber. Go with an aggressive roll/flare only when all the other options have been tried.
