Depends. Im guessing you dont want the hella flush crap. I would at least put a 255 or a 265/35/18 if you can fit it. You probably will have to run more negative camber and maybe pull your finders. You will at least have to roll your fenders completely flat.

PLEASE HELP!

Want to make a 17x8.5 fit a 2013 sedan. Offset is only 35.

I know it's not ideal, but what modifications will I need to make this work.

I see a lot of people making 18's fit with 40 offset, I'm hoping 17's allow enough wiggle room for 35.

Let me know, thanks!

Depends on tires. A little roll a little camber. Should be fine

Lol.

Wheel diameter means nothing in terms of fitment.

Need some help although I think I figured it out

2002 Wrx
Tein Flex Coilovers
18x10 +28 offset
235/40 tire
Fenders Rolled and Pulled

The rears are slightly rubbing my coilovers. I have searched already and found that camber is not adjustable in the rear for my car so I ordered the H&R triple C camber bolts to correct the camber. Am I missing something, because I can't find a thread that mentions this issue or how they corrected it.

Spacers or bolts to dial less negative camber.

The only reason you should be having inner clearance issues with that setup is by having too much negative camber.

Awesome that's what I figured. The camber bolts came in yesterday so I'll be adjusting it tonight.

You will be fine. In fact a 235/40 might be better and you won't even have to roll your fenders

Cool thanks. I haven't heard of any STI's running a 8.5s +40 so I thought I would ask.

Ninja Edit: And by that I didn't see any in the -/+ 10 pages I went back to.

I have an 02 wrx lowered on prodrive springs right now I'm running 225/40/18 on my 18x8 Prodrive pff7 et+51 wheels. Will a 235 fit without rubbing? Thanks.

should be ok unless you're running a lot of negative camber.

2011 WRX STI

ISC Coilovers

18x9.5j et35 (But I need to run a 15mm adapter)

Open for opinions on tire size.
I'm not against negative camber and stretched tires.

I understand this is a pretty aggresive setup and I was just wondering how much it would take to make it fit.

18x9.5 +35 with an additional 15mm spacers?

It's going to take more work than you are ready for. You need to find something closer to stock.

I was thinking about getting some Diamond Racing Wheel for my 02' Bugeye. I want a 16x8 or 16x9 and would like to mount a 245/50/16
tire. What offset will I need +45?? I don't want to lower the car but
would like to fill up the wheel well a little bit more.

Default 2014 WRX Hatch

I’ve browsed all the pages in this topic that might pertain to my WRX. I’m more confused about what I should do than when I first began. This is what I have:

year: 2014
model: WRX Hatch
wheel model: stock
wheel size/offset: 17x8 gunmetal gray 15 spoke alloys +53?
tire brand/model: Dunlop
tire size: 235/45R17 94W
suspension: stock
alignment: stock
fender mods: none
spacers: none

This is what I want/think I can do:

wheel model: Volk TE37SL
wheel size/offset: 18x8 +45
tire brand/model: Bridgestone RE970AS Pole Position
tire size: 235/40R18 95W
suspension: lowering springs .6” (brand?)
alignment: ?
fender mods: Really trying not to.
spacers: ?

Or

wheel model: Gram Lights 57C6
wheel size/offset: 18x8 +45

Or

wheel model: SSR GTV01
wheel size/offset: 18x8 +44

Any thoughts? I’m wanting to just have a daily driver that has an 18 inch wheel with less gap. I think my set ups will work. A shop I contacted suggested the 57C6’s in an 18x9.5. Too wide for what I’m wanting to do right?

Year: 07
Model: Wrx Wagon
Tire brand: none selected yet (possibly Bfg kdws)
Suspension: ISC coils (2 finger gap all the way around)
Sti LCAs, truhart adjustable rear lateral links
Alignment specs: still havent gotten a legit alignment, as all my suspension parts arent in quite yet.
Fender mods: not particularly looking to to roll fenders, but will eventually be going F/R sti widebody.

I can get a super good deal on a set of motegi sp10's from a buddy. I could use a new set of wheels as im sick of removing the dents from my wheels.

The wheels are 18x8 + 40. What tire size would I need to run, and would I need to atleast rolll the rear fenders?

Thanks,
~Evil

What will it take to fit those? Much more than you are ready for. Find something else.

it looks like you are going for proper fitment, in which case why get an 8.5" wheel to run a 235 tire? I would recommend a 245 or 255, or get a narrower lighter wheel for a 235. everything else looks fine

Thanks! I was thinking of the 235 because of the drop springs. Do you think a 245 would fit? If so that would be cool. I could go for the same width of my stock wheels (8") but wouldn't go any smaller. Also the wheel choices for an 8" wheel are not very good with my 5x100 bolt pattern.

It's gunna take a very very heavy pull. Almost t the point of a cut and reseam.

Your little narrowbody can't handle a setup that big. Not to mention its a lot of work for cheap wheels.

And you'll need rear LCA's if you want to even step up to a 9" wheel with a sub 30 offset.

Like I said. More work than you're ready for. Move on.
