Default will i be able to fit these under my car?

I have a 03 wrx on tein 2.5 lowering springs. I want to run a set of rotas 18by 9.5 with 235/40 tires on it. would i be able to get away with this with just rolling the rear fenders until i get my coilovers.

Im doing a pretty similar set up actually, rolling the fenders is a pretty sure bet, you probably will need to get some camber in the rears. Like -2 so you dont rub. Not sure thought because i am on stock shocks with prodrive springs.

I doubt very much that a 235 will fit on a 9.5" wide rim. Sounds too narrow a tire for such a wide rim.

A 9.5" rim is more likely to take a 255-275 tire
