IDK, 2-3 inches. Ground to top of the fender is something like 24" in the front and 25" in the rear.

I got a question.. I'm currently running PF01's 18 x 8.5 et48 on an 11 STi with no issues. I'm interested in the RCT4's..
Will the 18 x 9 et43 RCT4's clear the stock Brembos and will it be necessary to roll/modify the fenders at all(if I install coils, springs etc)?

not sure if they clear brembos (pretty sure they will though). And no, you probably won't need to roll.

Roll, pull depending on ride height. Even more so if it's a wagon.

you'll need fender mods with a 17x8 +35 unless you are running <225's.

Strictly speaking, those wheels are massive downgrades from your stock ones.

I am still wondering how much roll and pull and where i will need it with a 17X9 +35 offset rota grid with 235/40/r17 dunlops on there...they are extreme performance summer tires so they arent very beefy at all.

also, honestly...i have no idea how to roll or pull fenders...

Yes to both. You might need a slight pull in the rear depending on height.

You should do a 245/40 though. Your gearing will thank you.

I am trying to set this up, but I just want to make sure this will flow together. Before I write out the items I just want to say... I want this setup to benefit the handling of the car(obviously), I do not want to roll the fenders but i guess I am open to it, and I am unsure if I will need a camber kit after it is all said and done.

year: 2007
model: STI
wheel model:Enkei RPF1s
wheel size/offset: 17x9, offset would be some where around +35 I guess.
tire brand/model: Open to suggestions, but I would like hankook..
tire size: I want a small stretch but nothing drastic.
suspension: ISC coilover kit. Not on yet, but I am planning to drop at least 1.5 in front and 1 in the back.
alignment: I need help....
fender mods: Hope to have none if possible....
spacers: yes/no? size? No spacers

Hopefully this is an educated question. I just don't know where else to turn.

Thanks guys!

year: 2005
model: STi
wheel model:Varrstoen 2.2.0

wheel size/offset: 17x9.5, offset choices either +12 or +30 OR 17x9 +12

tire brand/model: I have 215/45/17s at home. Forget what they are lol.

tire size: I want a stretch I know they'll fit the 9j better but I know with 45 series 215 on 9.5j is easy amongst most
suspension: BC Racing BR 8k/6k

alignment: I figure max out the front coil alignment roughly and add my camber bolts in rear?

fender mods: I assume I can get away with just a close roll on every fender?

spacers: I assume no for the +12's. If I need for the +30 I'll just rock the 9j +12

Just wondering if I'm in the right ballpark on fender work. I'm up for some camber and I like riding fairly low so no fear there.

Will 265/35/18 fit on 18x9 +50 for an '05 sti? I currently have 245/35/18s and there are times where the bottom of my rim's lip gets scratched on trackdays on certain turns. I am looking for some more sidewall so it will be less prone to do that. I am pretty sure 255/35/18 will be fine, but hoping for some more tire.

Is there a way I could get these wheels to be more flush with the fenders by just using spacers?
This is my winter setup and I am looking into new wheels and tires for the summer and want to learn the game of flushness but do not want to sacrafice too much function for my car is a stage 3.
