hey guys, i have ordered some 18x8.75 +35 XXR 530's for my 2006 STI which ill be running on 225/40/18 tyres

can you guys recommend the best camber specs i should be running to get best performance and fitment, i have coilovers so adjustability isn't an issue. also will i need to do any work to the rear fender's to make them fit? the front's have already been rolled, but since i live in australia no one wants to touch my rear fenders because of the double lip it has

help us out my american friends haha

Hey whats up guys. Just grabbed some xxr 527 18x8.75 +35 and i am torn between 225/40 and 235/40. i am going to be on Tein Springs and have both rear and front fenders rolled. What would you guys recommend? I also have 255/35/18 from my brother but i think that might be a little to much, what do you guys think?

I have S-techs on my wife's bugeye (was mine for 3 years) just decided to try something different with my new one . Love the springs though, just did a road trip, drove about 2200 miles on em no problems. When i get my wheels on I'll load up some pics, I'm on plasti dipped stockers right now

You mean 8.75" or 9.75"? There is no 9". As for will it fit, the 8.75" will with a roll and minor pull in the back. The 9.75"? Sure, but not well. If you want to "stance" your car, you shouldn't even consider it without coilovers and expect plenty of fender work. Otherwise you'll have rubbing issues and it will be such a pain to drive.

They have to disclose that it's not compatible because it will require work to the fenders to make them fit. It's not a direct replacement of your factory wheels which are smaller and have a much higher offset.

Yeah. You will need a pull in the back. The +35 would be a better alternative since you have springs instead of coilovers. The +20 and +35 have the same concave face. If seeing that made you worried, stick to a closer to stock setup.
