I rubbed with 18x9.5et34 with stock suspension on my sedan. I believe I had 245/40's, or whatever tires came off an STi.

New to this, so please be nice. I have a set of Blizzaks (stock size 235/45/17), have a stock 2011 WRX, and am looking into a set of winter rims.

I found these on craigslist and hoping they would work for me.
http://youngstown.craigslist.org/pts/3417166506.html
Enkei 17 in Wheels. (set of 4)
Will fit 5x115 & 5x100.
Will fit most FWD GM cars! Came off of my Grand Prix, NO BENDS, CRACKS, OR REPAIRS just got new wheels!!! $300 obb

I texted the seller and he does not know the offset. He said they were off of a Pontiac GrandPrix. Tirerack recommends +40 to +42 on the 17's for the GrandPrix that I checked.

So, if I go see them I should try to throw one of them on my car and if It clears the calipers I should be good to go? Also would a wheel width between 7 - 8 inches work with this setup. Any other advice is appreciated.

I searched through 10 pages here and I couldn't find this: 245/35 on 18x9.5 et35. I assume the rears need to be rolled and fronts are okay?. If anyone has pics for reference that would be great.

you'll be fine. if you're lowered, yeah the rears will probably need to be rolled.

great choice on tire, IMO perfect size for 5 speed gearing.

You will be fine on both the tire and wheel fitment on the car.. Unless your sitting too low , which I doubt cause your on springs not coils ....if you are too low then you might have to roll the back fender cause the tires might be too big ....
But like I said , you'll be fine ....

Check out wheeldude.com
( I believe that's the correct site )
They show tons of wheel fitments with pics

I'm looking at getting a pair of Rota Mxr rims. There 18x9.5 with a 38mm offset. Thinking a 225/40/18 or possible 235 tire on it. I have a 2010 wrx, and was wondering if it would fit or would I need to roll the fenders? By next summer Ill have coilovers on the car and will be lowered. Let me know your guys feedback.

well. it helps to actually post in a thread that pertains to your car (or is a generic fitment thread....like the stickies).

you'll need at least a roll. possibly more depending on ride height.

Did you have to roll the rears? What are you lowered on?

you quoted the wrong person.

at that height you'll need to roll.

at stock height you wont, but will look stupid stretching a tire at stock height.
