You need more camber or a fender pull. What size tire you running?

they will rub in the rear, about -2 camber should help. I have the same wheels with 255 tires. I have Stances that are pretty stiff so that helps too.

none of our advice matters since none of us know what tire size you plan on running.

Your diagnosis is correct. They will stick out. That's why people pull out their fenders.

call around your local shops for a quote on rolling/pulling the rear fenders. 18x9 +35 with 235s is easy to fit without rubbing.

Many shops won't touch your fenders. They don't want to be liable for cracked paint which is common from fender rolling. I suggest doing it yourself if you're serious.

rolling the fenders doesn't stop it from rubbing with a +35, you're gonna need to dial in some camber to fit those without rubbing.

I fit those on my wagon with rolled rear fenders, lower camber bolts and Cusco coils w/camber plates. I was running 225/40/18's though. On a sedan with 235's or 245's you should have no problem. GL

did you not know that an 18x9 +35 was going to be that far outside the fender?? did you do any research before buying? YOU bought the wheels, DEAL with it...you have 2 options:

1. sell or return the wheels
2. stop moaning and do what it takes to get them to fit

265/35/18 on Rota 18x9 +35, '04 STi

Wheels/tires do not stick out past the fenders--they're actually a bit inside the fenderline.

Front and rear fenders rolled.
Front and rear fenders pulled (though not an outrageous amount).
Ride height set for competition, not street (not interested in low, just go).
9k front/7k rear springs (Zero 2Rs).
No rubbing front or rear, street, track or autox.
