Default G-force Fitment

Hey all I'm sure I'll get flamed for this but I have a totally stock 04 STI I plan on RCE blacks maybe aftermarket struts eventually. Anyways I was looking at the G-force 18X9 +35. I love the aggressive look. Would fender rolling and new rear camber bolts be all I need for it to fit? Also I saw that they come in 18 X8.5 +48 will the y fit better? Finally Does anyone have comparative pics preferable hyperblack.
Thanks for any input

You're gonna need more than that to fit man, and you didn't say what tire size either. I've owned 18x9 Gforce along with many other wheels as low as a +21 offset. I would wait till you get a good suspension setup first. You are going to at least need to roll your rear fenders and add some camber. The 18x8.5 will be an easier fit. It doesn't look aggressive though.

no hyperblack pics, here is gunmetallic

rolling and pulling front and rear

that was my setup previously

I'd argue that anything over 8.5 or 9" wide with a 245+ tire would need AT LEAST the rear fenders rolled flat...if you go any wider you have to pull, and unless you have a good puller, I wouldn't do it...not worth it.

2cents.

That looks sweet! I have the g-force 18x8.5" wrapped in bridgestone eagle f1 all seasons 235/40/18. I have these on my 08 wrx and love it!

I hate the stretched look I was thinking 245 or 255. Also what about lowering the ratio alittle to like a 245 35 18 or a 235 30 18?. What would be a good suspension? I Do plan the rce blacks and an aftermarket strut. I didn't think I was going to be driving enough for coilovers.
