Just to cover this once more... Wheels: Rota D-Force 18x9.5 +40 (Gold) Tires: Falken Azenis RT-615 - 265/35/R18

Stock suspension, Rear fenders are rolled, fronts are not. Rears still rub on large bumps or with a fully loaded backseat.
Nice lookin ride. Does it rub in corners if you're really pushing it as well? I was looking at a very similar setup, but with Dunlop Direzza DZ101 265/35R18's. Do you think they could roll the rear fenders more and get the rubbing to go away?

It doesn't rub during hard cornering when its just me in the car (It might if I have people in the back seat, but I keep the hard cornering to a minimum with a full load of people). I could roll the rear even more than I did, but I was concerned about trapping dirt and salt in there during the winter and not beaing able to rinse it out if I had closed up the gap between the fender and the fender lip too tight by rolling them further. I'd probably go with a 255 next time around to keep it from rubbing... but I got a great deal on closeout 265 wide Rt-615s so I went that route this time.

I am debating between 255/40 and 265/35. It looks like I will have to roll the rears either way. I would rather have Dunlop Star Specs but they make these in 265/35 and not 255/40. If I went with 255/40 they would be Advan AD08. Hard decision.

I'm not sure if you guys have seen this or not. Nice little tool:
http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp
If you want a link that fills in the stock 2011 WRX on the left, and 18x9.5 265/35-18's on the right... use this link:
http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp?...rw2=9.5&et2=40

That's kinda disapointing that the 9.5's rub on stock suspension if you got some weight in the back. Other people said that it didn't rub at all. I suppose it depends on your tire as well. Maybe a 255/35-18 would work.

Has anyone seen a 255/35-18 on a 18x9.5 rim? I'd like some pictures just to see if it looks rolled.

Just to be clear, it's not the WHEEL that rubs, it's the TIRE. A 265/35R18 MAY rub in the back if you don't roll the fenders -- it depends on the tire and your car. A 275/35R18 WILL rub in the back if you don't roll the fenders. A 255/35R18 probably will NOT rub at all, although I don't have first-hand proof of this yet.

On a 18x9.5 would the 255's be stretched?

A little, but it's not bad. Just imagine halfway between the 245s and the 265s shown...

As a matter of fact, here are some 245s now:



2009 WRX, 245/40R18. Lowered on BC coilovers. Front fender liners trimmed. -2.5 degrees camber.

I'll post more/better pictures tomorrow with more detail.
the -2.5 degree camber spec is for the rear. the fronts are -1.5.

Thanks Dan!

I'd like to see a photoshop of these wheels in Gold on WRB GR. Those Grids look sick on that WRB GD. I am torn between the two wheels

Yes! Much carving of the rear plastic AND metal fender material had to be done.
