I want to do the 9.75 +20 but doubt the leagcys have as much clearance as the impreza.

So much for not doing any mods to my daily diver. haha.
everyones doin 527s...just buy my 522s!!!!

aeion - Thanks for all of your replies. I'm a total newb when it comes to wheel.

One more question.. if i go with 527 18x9.75 +35 will i need to roll fenders or any mod to support? and what tire size would you recommend?

Thanks!!

and since there is no oem rear camber adjustment you're going to need at least camber bolts and/or rear camber plates
Thanks alot. Yeah I guess I'll go with 8.75 +35 and a 215/225.

BTW what tires/size are you running?

it depends how low you want to go.. HerraFrush **** get like a 215/40
meaty slight stretch- 245/40 or 235/40
super meat 255/35's (265/35's for 08+ body style)

^all depends on height and camber
