Default Will Rota G-force 18x9 +35 or Rota Torque 18x9.5 +35 fit on my 03 wrx?

I want to know if Rota G-Force 18x9 +35 offset or Rota G-Force 18x9.5 +35 offset will fit on my 03 wrx with S.Tech loweing springs.
If they do what will be a good tire size to put on them?
thanks lmk

once your tein s techs get worn out..then tend to drop the back lower then the front.I know because i had s. techs on my car before.So with that being said your going to have major rubbing issues in the back even if you have your fenders rolled. Heres my 03 (with a 06 frontend) but im running megan track series coilovers and 235/40/18 tires

That looks sweet. I have a similar setup. Mine is an 02 with an 04 front end conversion. I am debating on stepping up to the 18x9.5 from my current 18x8.5. With my 18x8.5 +48 I was able to run 255 wide tires but I did have to roll the rear fenders. I am running SPT Blues. I run 245 RT-615 which are wide tires and prob more like an 255 and no problems with my set up.

of course they'll fit. will they cause issues? of course they will.

are you willing to do what it takes to prevent rubbing? how much work you are willing to do will affect your tire size.

and you do know you're going about this all backwards right? you choose a tire size then you do what's required to get them to fit.
