I know it will fit, what I was hoping for were some pictures of how they look. I don't want the tires to look like they bulging out too bad, if anyone could help me out that would bs awesome, preferably nitto's since tire manufacturers tend to vary a bit in how they fit on the wheels.

this is going to vary greatly because section width is completely different from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Not a subaru, but this give you an idea. 18x8 with 245/45/18 s.drives:







It's a slightly meaty overhang but as sc00by4life said, it's going to vary with the tire. I think it looks great on our tuned tiguan.

Yea that's what I was hoping someone would have some nitto's. Thanks for the pics guys, I'll probably just go 245, the slight overhang doesn't look bad at all
