is your suspension stock? what's your camber like? stock? fenders rolled?

You should include all the details so there is no guess work.

18x8 in that offset with those tires should be a pretty easy fit any way you look at it on a 09 WRX. You may need to slightly roll your rear fenders or dial in a bit of camber if there is any rubbing under hard turns.

hey man... sorry for leaving all that out. this car is bone stock it only has 3000k on it. the overall diameter is actually smaller than the 225/45/17's it comes with stock according to the tire calculator, i was mostly concerned with the change in width (from 225 to 245). i just really love the meatier/fatter/wider rubber look (as does everyone else), but I didn't want to overdo it, ya know.

245/35/18 needs an 18x8.5" rim if not wider.
