You'll definitely need a roll, how much you have to pull depends on how much tire you want to run and how low you are. Same with the camber.


Get the feals. Those coils suck.

there is no other input.

you got what you needed to know.

now search, there ARE cars running that same setup.

how much work you want to do is dependant on what type of setup you want to run.

yep, they're 5x100 too. You'll just wanna check offset to ensure they clear the brakes but I dont think it would be an issue.

I know they make a 9 inch wheel that would fit no problem but i love the large lip and couldnt find any pictures showing the lip on the 9 ich wheels compared to 10 inch... Also about how much camber can i be expecting?
I was looking at that set-up too, but I'm pretty sure I read that you'll need a 15-20mm spacer to make those wheels clear the brakes. So essentially, you need to buy the 18x10 +18 if you don't want to run spacers.

18x10 +18 won't fit very well. My wheels are 17x9 +17 and they poke a lot. Now account for an extra inch roughly a 12mm lower offset would essentially fit like if my wheels had a 5mm offset. Unless you plan on slamming it and are willing to run massive amounts of camber to make it fit they won't work. My tires clear the rear by about 1-2mm and that's with a 235/45 tire. I had front and rear fenders rolled with minimal pull. You could squeeze a few mm out of the fenders for sure but your going to need tiny tires to make those fit and they will look really odd if its not slammed.

The wheels are 38+ offset a bit easier to fit than 18+ dont you think so?

Ya for sure. Ultimate fitment question now depends on the tire size you want. I really don't know what size to tell you as I've never had larger than a 9in wide wheel. I would guess a 245 or 255 should work since it will still be stretched on that 10 in wheel

+38 you could run 245-255 easily, esp if you roll the rear.

+18...you need a 225/45 or 235/40 (MAX SIZE).

Hey I'm pretty new to the subi world, and I'm working on lowering my wagon and getting some wheels. It's a 02 wrx wagon and I'm wondering how wide a wheel I can go without having to do fender work

You have posted this in the thread that's specifically for 2011+ cars. This is the wrong thread for you.

I'd search this forum for "wagon," and read threads like this one.

2011 Wrx stock suspension and don't want to roll or pull...

18" wheel preferred in a 8" or 8.5" size.
What would be the preferred offsets for each of those sizes? (Would also like to keep a tire size as close to a 245/35 as possible)

You guys think 17x9.5 +35 or if I go with XXR 17x9.75 +25 (not sure if these will be too much of a hassle to fit) wheels are too small for a good kinda aggressive stance on a 2011 wrx? I'm trying to decide what wheels to go with. Will be getting BC BR coils before anything. Just trying to figure my plan out!

I want it to be pretty low, but a pretty aggressive setup, not sunken in!

Or are 18" wheels a better option?

save up for some better coils, and dont even bother with the XXR's.

both of those fitments will require a slight bit of work to fit, but you could fit slightly more tire with the 9.5 +35.

And 18x9.5 +38 would need some fender work as well, correct? Will a setup like that or the 17x9.5 +35 poke a lot?

Define a lot. It would poke but in my eyes it look good with the right tire size. I love how my wheels poke

+48 or higher should work great. I would do the 8.5" width, though. 245 is kind of chubby for an 8" wide wheel.
