Default 18 Inch Volk Rims

Hey whats up Everyone I just got some 18inc Volk GT-C rims for my car. They are 18inch rims off set is +43 the rims are a little wider in the back I think 18x8.5 in the front and 18x9.5 RIMS are 5x114.3

I have an 07 STI
rite now at stock hight.

What kind of tire sizes can I put on so that there is no rubbing when I turn? plus do I need to put any spacers, or fender roll to fit them?


Thanks again

Why are you running 2 different size wheels? Wider wheels in the back of the STI is just a bad idea. Plus you know you can'r run different size tires right?

If anything you would benefit more from having the wider wheels in the front rather than the back .... BUT ... our cars were really NOT designed to run different size wheels & tires. If you are trying to do it for looks, then that's really just idiotic. If you are doing it because you got a good deal on the wheels. Well, then you didn't end up with quite as good of a deal as you thought you did as now you really should look and try to get 2 matching wheels to one of the sizes so you would have a matching set of 4 wheels.

Ruh roh... Put your flame suit on.

Did you even test fit them? My guess is the backs won't even clear the struts. If for some reason they do, they will stick out past the fenders. It's an STi, not a 68 Camaro.

If you're not going to take advice from people that actually know what hey're talking about...just do whatever you want. Actually, why don't you put some really wide tires on the rear and little tires on the front? Then post in a month explaining how your center diff blew up.
