Or you can do what I did which was remove the wing myself(easy) and wrap the trunk with your choice of vinyl(sorta easy...ish). Yes you can still see where the holes were but only up close(like when dudes be hating at your local meet). From a-far it looks clean, didn't cost you much(vinyl is cheap) and when you're making the big bucks you can get that CF trunk just as I plan to do.

Yeah it looks good from that angle, but we need to see the part of the trunk where the holes are/were.

So if someone could help me out with this that'd be really great. I have a 2010 wrx. I've been searching 4 days on the Internet and can't quite find an answer. I am looking to get some xxr 527's. For an 18 inch wheel they have 18x8.75 et35. Can I get this to fit on my car by just rolling the fenders? Also could you recommend a tire size for me? Would 235 35 18 work? Or would that be really small on an 18? Thanks in advance!

You'd need to roll and pull... I have 18x8 et48 and had to roll and pull for 255 35 18.. Also that tire will be so stretched you'll look like a retarded civic stanced out.. If that's the look you want, cool.. But you'll lose all handling properties of the tire..

I would suggest a 235/40 or a 245/35 size tire... I'm running a 245/35 on an 9.5 and there is barely a stretch to the tire... Both of those tires will most likely fit with no to minimal stretch... 235/35 is going to be too short... You will def need to roll the fenders, a pull shouldn't be necessary but a slight pull couldn't hurt

Can we refrain from saying retarded, thanks... 235/35 wouldn't be that stretched, I want to say someone here is running them on an 9.5, but still wouldn't suggest them...

Yeah I would say a 245/35 for that setup if you don't want any stretch. The part that makes the fitment tough is the +35 offset.

With that ^ tire I should just need a roll? I for sure wont need camber or any other modifications?

You should be fine with a roll, you're getting coilovers right?? You may need some negative camber but nothing crazy like -4... How low you want to go will determine a lot in terms of how much - camber is needed...

Edit: I want to say qwaktastik is running the Xxr 527s 18x8.75??... I'd pm him and see what he says, or maybe hell see this and jump in...

So as you can see be it in bright sunlight or shade, they're really not super noticeable unless you're up close. I've found it to be a great temporary solution and soon there will be an M3 style spoiler covering the outer dimples.
