Default The 08-10 WRX (non STi) 17"/18" wheels thread

so i didnt see a thread for this specific application, so i figured i would make one to help me and anyone else find fitment options in a single thread rather than looking through other threads which are compiled with multiple model years and different size wheels.

preferred format for ease:

Wheel Specs: Diameter / Width / Offset
Tire and Specs: Model, Width/Sidewall/Diameter
Suspension: Springs / Shocks, approx. how much lowered in inches
Fender Modification: rolling/pulling necessary?
Wheel Spacers: how thick in mm, if applicable

pics of the fitment of your setup would be nice too if you have them. please try to keep the posts to 08-10 WRXs only, as other MYs and STi fitment may not be applicable to the 08+ WRX.

I find the ride quality a bit rough on this setup... and xxr 522 feels a bit heavy.

this isnt the thread for that question. you should search and see what others have run (since no one has posted such setup in this thread yet). this thread is mostly just to be a guideline, not a definitive answer on what will or will not work on your car.

but mostly it will depend on a lot of different variables that come into play.

what offset are the wheels? what suspension mods do you have? how low is the car? what are your camber settings? what tires are you running and in what size? etc. all of those things come into play. but with 18x9 i would probably expect to roll the rear fenders, at least from what ive seen.

Wheel Specs: Work emotion cr Kai's 17x9 +44
Tire and Specs: Hankook sport k104 245/40
Suspension: stock for now. rce/bilstein combo soon. 20mm front, 15mm rear.
Fender Modification: will be rolling rear soon but atm no, no rubbing.
Wheel Spacers: none.
about a 15mm clearance between inner rim/tire and front strut. next tire will probably be 255/40 depending on if clearance changes with rce/bilstein kit. in the second pic the front wheel seems to stick out pretty far, looking at the car now it doesnt seem as much.

It seriously looks great. I would have gotten those wheels in the same steel gray that my Torques came in, but I had to stick with 17's. (Long story, but tire shop screwed up my stock wheels switching over from stock summer to brand new a/s tires when the car had 600 mi. on it, and they cut me a check for new wheels, so I used my new a/s tires on these ) The gold on white is nice, the drop is subtle, the exhaust gives the hint of performance, and the tail lights look like they are supposed to. Don't change a thing. Good job!
