I'm rolling 18x9 G Forces with Tein S Techs. I had to roll my fenders but tires do rub under hard turns and really big bumps.

it depends on your tire choice and how much you roll them.

you can make them work.

wheel offset?

245/40/18 can be made to fit without rubbing but that depends on fender mods, camber, and suspension. 255/35/18 is a better size.

a 235/40/18 will fit rubbing free if you run an 18x9 +45mm to +40mm

any lower offset/wider tire you'll need coilovers/fender work/camber or some combination of those three.

added a quote to clear up any confusion.

an 04 WRX can run an 18x9 +45mm offset with a fender roll and the right suspension. that could be considered alot of work though.
