So unless you guys know something I dont about 531s...i think it might be the same problem.
I am giving it a shot with 10mm spacers up front, when I mounted the wheel I measued a min clearance of about 7-8mm so I figured 10 would suffice. We shall see once we get them mounted.

I chose the Ichiba V1 with ARP longer studs

Gotcha...I understand now. I was hoping to hear...."Oh yeah....XXR said they will fit without spacers!"

thanks!! rubbing like crazy though...the wheel sits too far back in the wheel well so it rubs on the fender and on part of the body behind the fender and i need to get camber bolts and go negitive on the rear as they are PERFECTLY flush!! ok well not perfectly but probably fix the rubbing with like .1-.2* neg camber its that close!!!

but with the first issue anyone know if there is a way to bring the wheels forward and more center in the wheel well?? maybe different chassis control arms or shims by the rear bumper?? i know ALKs add but do they move anything or does it just change the angle to alter caster??

I know, I knew it MIGHT be an issue when I bought them but I figured what the hell, i will give it a shot. Hopefully the 10mm is enough but it should be unless I measure like a 5 year old.

I want to get the 530s but I don't want to roll my fenders. What would be a nice setup to do so....... Or should I just get coils, roll them, and get the 530s?

Not the potholes fault, bump stops? Coilovers? Didn't you know it would destroy them if you don't have the correct roll/suspension/camber for those wheels?

bump stops, unless somehow you exploded them? or if you run coilovers, and you are that low with those wheels, what do you expect?

It was while I was turning ha. Not a big deal and I'm pulled and rolled with -3 camber in rear.

And previous owner had it bondoed so that's why it broke like that! Bondo doesnt flex.

I'm interested in getting some XXR 530s in 17x8.25. I'm lowered but not slammed on TEIN coilovers. Do I need to roll my fenders or should I be safe? I don't know much about buying new wheels so bare with me. Here's an idea of the ride height

You wont have any problems. I have 17x8.25 +35 offset on lowering springs and theres no rubbing issues. I have 225/45 tires. Youd be able to even run 235's if you wanted. Id recommend +25 for sedan fenders

You will need a roll. I'm runnin 527s 225/45 18x8.75 +35, and on stock struts and springs 02 Wrx I needed a roll BAD.. Now on Coilovers my car still rubs sometimes. But my spring rate is bouncy. That's what happens when u let idiots adjust ur coils for u...

I suggest a pull. I only did a roll.. I can't even go low, I raise my back from the bottom of the adjuster to the last spring loop (however u wanna say it), 6 and a half inches. And the front is lowered 3 and a quarter inches
