really a difference in size there buddy... I'd say no to the 18x9.5 since it's going to take alot to fit and if your two options are 7.5 and 9.5 then you probably don't know all the work you will need to do to make the 9.5's fit. I would get a 17x8 Rota instead.

Seriously? I thought you were just being funny. Its obvious that the more aggressive wheel would look ALOT better. But be prepared to spend ALOT more time and $$$ to get 18x9.5 to work on your daily driver.

Camber plates, camber bolts, fender roll, fender pull, and alot of time on the alignment rack. By the way, your car will be off the road while all these parts and labor is going on. So be prepared.

17x9 +42 Rota DPT... it's a pretty easy fit on any impreza, even a wagon. You will need to roll your fenders still.

Why not 18x8,8.5? That's a way more common size because it looks great of course. Maybe not as good as a really aggressive size but at least you won't have to do any work to make them fit. Why are your only choices at opposite ends of the spectrum? I would choose something more in the middle.
