Oh you'll see it there for sure--the C&C season is over for now but the first warm one I'll be there. We will be wrapping up my car over the next few months. Engine is now in--final checklist is being worked on.

+38mm and 275 wont work, you'll need a lower offset to clear the suspension.
EDIT: 9.5 +38mm and 275 wont work. (I've had 8" +38mm w/ 275 and 9" +43mm w/275 work with KW V3s, but going to a wider wheel will "unpinch" the 275 and you'll run into issues)

Unless you've got ZZYZX or JRZs with custom ears you'll be hitting the strut or the coilover springs.

Even with positive camber at the bolt and negative camber at the plate you'll be short on clearance if you want a 275.

The stock fenders even when pulled heavily are tough to fit a 275. 265s really are the "limit" of the stock fenders. You could do a +35mm with a 265.

This is a gallery so I don't want to take it too far off topic, shoot me a PM we can bounce ideas around.

Looking for some input from you guys in this thread.

My wheels came in today and I think I've narrowed down my tire choice. Just having trouble on tire size. I will be running an 18x9 +25 on my 04 sti. Ideally, I would be running a 265/35 but with my offset, I think that's gonna be a little too hard to pull off. Would a 255/35 be a better consideration? I really don't want to go any narrower than a 255 but I need to hear some feedback and advice..

My fenders are already rolled flat with a mild pull from my last setup which wasn't quite as aggressive.

So on a GD with an 18x9 +25, how much meat can I achieve?

My advice is yes go ahead but... You will need to pull and roll a bit more specially in front and only then tire will sit flush and not past fender.

I am running 18x9 +25 advans on my hawkeye w 265/35/18 heavily pulled and rolled

0 camber in rear
-1.3 front

04 sti peanut eye's lack of rear fender little flare and might look awkward if not done properly

I'm pretty sure you can't get any more flushness with this setup.

Needs a little bit lower of a profile tire but that looks great

As much a people complain about narrow tires not being meaty, I think they're wrong. Meaty to me could be wide or thicker. My STi to me is too meaty on 235/45s on 17x9 RPFs
