Default Is this a good size? 18x8.5 et35

2011 WRX Limited and I'm thinking of picking up a set of wheels. They are:
Miro 111 18x8.5 et35
255/35/18 tires



Is this a good offset? Will I rub on the fender?

My other options are:
Rota SVN 18x9 et40
Rota Gravel 18x8.5 et44

I just want to go different route than rota!

IMO the 18-8.5 +35 will require a fender roll

Have You seen the new TSW Nurburgring?18-8.5 +45mm 19.5 lbs

Rotary Forged the rim of the wheel is forged at high pressure while the wheel is spun at high speed.This alters the molecular structure and enhances the strenght of the alloy.The benefit is a much lighter weight than a regular cast wheel.Most importantly,the weight saving is in the outer rim of the wheel which dramatically reduces rotational mass and enhances vehicle performance.

we have a deal on them Tom@waukegantire.com

Miro is on the same level as rota, quality wise at least they seem pretty good. 18x8.5 +35 is not even close to needing a roll on a 2011. Pics when you get them installed!

Yes, the 2010 and 2011 have a different offset, no it's not significant. The WRX is as follows:
02-05: +53
06-10: +55
11: +53

+35 is too low of an offset.

yes slightly difference offsets (and I believe different wheel widths), but the '11s all have the wider sti-style fenders. there are guys running 18x9.5 with 265's and no rolling.

I agree that +35 should be fine on a 8.5", you might need a slight slight roll if not any. You will be fine. By the way i was looking into those Miro111 myself, that BMW is 19s in that picture and the rears are for sure their 9.5" and the fronts are 8.5", don't have that much concavity. If had your car, I would do the 9.5" all around.

You HAVE to add camber. 0 camber is not only DANGEROUS but is not how you properly set up a car for an "aggressive" fitment.

read this thread: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...t=rota+d+force .18x9.5 +40 on a (2010?) sti with 265's. No roll required (that car has the rears rolled to fit 275's on another set of wheels). One of my buddies has an 09 with 17x10 +20 w/ 255's rolled front and rear fenders.

Good tip Thanks.

How is it done properly? roll or no roll? in terms of keeping it track ready

Don't bother with that game. You already know the answers. I can run 22"s on the car and they will fit, does the fact that it can be done make it a good idea?
