Will they fit?
Not without major modifications they won't.

And I'm talking major.

Good luck with that.

+35 should fit no problems.. +15 will be a bit more tricky.. depends more on what size tire you plan on running?

See, now I know you're just hearing what you want to hear.

Two guys, both low member number mods tell you no, they won't fit without major mods. Yet you take the word of some newbie clown who says they will?

Tell you what.
Buy the wheels, then post a thread whining about how they don't fit. Because that's what's going to happen...

Look kid, If your getting a great deal on a set of +35 9.5 wides get them and if they dont fit sell them. +15 is pushing it, Unless someone has tried noone will know.

2.5 years ago I asked NASIOC if running 18x8.5 +35 on just springs would work. Everyone said either " Won't Work ", " Your Killing the look of the Car" or "Say good bye to your wheel bearings". That like I said was 2.5 years ago and I am still in 18x8.5 +35 w/ 235/40/18 with just a slight rear fender roll and stock Wheel Bearings. 60k+ Miles I have driving with no rubbing or wheel bearing issues. Now look at damn near every Subaru posted, There all 8+" wide and "Hella Flush"


I am thinking about going 9.5 wide +38 with no additional mods.

But On Topic: JUST DO IT.

Would they fit ? Why would you consider staggered offset on an all wheel drive performance performance vehicle. Unless you don't care about the performance, in which case anything is possible. You could power it with chain saw motors if you wanted to. +15 with a spacer would only make the already horrid situation worse. A good deal on useless wheels is expensive for useless wheels. Post after you do it and try to explain why you did it anyway, now that would take some work.

WILL NOT FIT! END OF STORY! This requires MAJOR modifications to the fender including rolling, negative camber of probably 3*, and pulling in most cases. Most of the guys in the Aggressive Wheel threads are running a higher offset than +15. That is just a stupid low number. Most are between +22 and +35 IIRC. Stop talking. You are giving bad info.

Just for reference, here are a few and their wheel sizes. Keep in mind that most of these are also running modified fenders and neg. camber.

I follow the "Hella Flush" pretty closely, event though I'm far from flush. A lot of these wheel postings are the actual rim size, MINUS spacers, and some of these guys are rocking sub 20 offest with spacers accounted for. So before you hate, check the facts. Bugs the **** outta me when someone says "it can't be done." Those are usually the first to shut their mouths when it IS done. To the op, DO IT! Pull the F*ck outta those fenders, camber and dump it.

Blu-scooby is a nitwit. This is a technical forum, not the members car gallery. Sure you can pretty much make ANYTHING fit...depends how much time/money you want to put into doing it. Hell I could make a WRX into a monster truck...doesn't mean it's a smart thing to do.

Yea, most all spacers are run in the front to clear the brembos and allow the owner to add "dish" or "lip". The rear doesn't allow so much for the spacers and which is more than likely why you see so many people running more camber in the back than in the front. Follow it closely? With just 54 posts and a newb number? I didn't say "it can't be done". I said, it requires LOTS OF WORK! Fit means bolt up and drive away. Make it work means MODIFY.

reading owns

BTW, it seems that being that Rota is the popular brand in the previously posted list, you would find one of those wheels in a offset in the teens. Well, none of the wheels listed are available in anything at that offset. The Torque is available at 17x9.5 +12 but only appears on the list as a 17x9 which would be +30 or +35.

Great suggestion. He wants to buy the completely wrong offset "because I can get them cheap", so then he'll have spend gobs of extra cash to make them fit "with some work". Sounds like a smart financial decision.
