Haha sorry for the wait! Just got the tires mounted (245/40/18) last week. I'm taking the car down to TiC this week to have all 4 fenders rolled and the rears pulled. Will have the wheels on right after that with pictures

On that note...anyone else running 18x8.75 +35 on 245/40/18's? I think I've seen like 1, maybe 2 pictures with this set-up and am wanting to see more.

How are the ns2's?

I'm looking at those for a trial/temp set to check fitment and tie me over until I get better tires. I don't want to blow $$$ and realize that I should've gone smaller, ns2's are only $400 a set right now. I also want to get these wheels on the wrx already lol

I have a 2009 wrx sedan and its at stock ride height. Will the 18x8.75's fit without coilovers? and fender flares? and rubbin? Im eventually going to lower it with coils but not in the near future as i dont have the money to. And also would the 18x8.75s need extended lugs? also what tire size? Any help is much appreciated and if you have pictures of them on your car (PREFERABLY 2009-2010) let me know what size and offset they are and u will be my new best friend haha THANKS!
Id suggest 18x8.75 in 35 offset. I have a 09 sedan and am runnin the 530s in 18x8.75 20 and 225/40 tires. I had lowering springs and rolled rear fenders when they were mounted and they never rubbed but the 35 offset would fit a lot better without having to camber and roll fenders on coils. I have since added bc coils, rolled the fronts and slightly pulled the rears, and had to get some negative camber to tuck the tires to get the height where I wanted it. 12x1.25 tuner lugs will work just fine also. Ill try to get some pics and post them today.

215 to 255, that's quite the switch.

What made you decide to do that?
