Well like I mentioned above. My 11 stocks had a pretty high offset. Some say its a little lower than thy but I'm not 100%. My current wheels have a +25 (remember my car is stanced). So basically if your concerned about rubbing go with a bit lower than what you are thinking. You can check things like tirerack.com to see what sizes the system allows. I don't think you should go more than a 235 though. With a 9" it won't look that stretched. Again that's an opinion (you should go with a style you like. Your footprint won't change much if your using a 235 tire with either wheel.

The car came on 18'x7", but I am thinking stock size is 17x6.5..? I'm sure I could look it up really quickly, but eh.. I think I will go with a 235/40/17 once I get the wheels, that does seem like an all around good fit. Have any pics of your car? I'd like to see how stanced you are. To tell the truth if I had a second car and enough money I would definitely drop it low with some huge wheels.

I have XXR's on my car and yes they are less expensive then some other wheels out there. Besides trying to be a troll and bash my wheels, why don't you pay attention to his remark about having money for a second car. But thanks for chiming in your 2 cents. I have had no issues with my wheels and I have takin them On The track as well. They do what I need them to do. Why pay more when I like them. Here's a pic taken of my car at Subiefest.

Don't get butt hurt.

He was saying if he had more money, and I merely pointed out that he could have a similar look for mere pennies.

Butt hurt? You make me laugh. You are a troll and like to go around and flame up peoples threads or pots because you prob. sit at home looking at wall paper you call your car. This is why NASIOC is a useless place for information. Because of people like you!! Good luck in your expedition to be right in all your opinions.

@Fatty_Patty

If you have any other questions hit me up via PM. I hate dealing with children who dont have a car and go around flaming up posts and trolling NASIOC.

I have a 2004 wrx on Ksport Kontrol Pro coils, I'm running xxr 527 18x8.75 +38 on 245/40/18 tires. Currently at -3.5 f/r, wanting to go way less camber but I have no idea what I should get aligned to next because I don't want my wheels sticking out too far. Currently have no rolling or pulling.

read through this thread and see who is giving out the most advice.

i've gone through several different wheel fitments, some of which are even difficult for the GR's to pull off. you can find some pictures of what "i call my car" in some of the original church threads if you really wanted.

again, i dont know why you're upset at my original comment. Just because I said the wheels are "affordable", that now means all information on nasioc is useless? They ARE cheap wheels. that isn't an opinion. get over yourself.

Keep trying defend yourself and your opinion. Your description of cheap wheels was that someone could get them for pennies. That's not a fact. Some people still spend what they consider their hard earned money on them and they do the job perfect. You trying to flame up threads and run everyone by your opinion or trying to just come in a bash someone is in fact you being a TROLL

Advice maybe, but bashing people based on his opinions calling wheels pennies is not advice.

You don't have to take anyone's opinion on here, but due note that the single reason one posts pictures on here is to feel proud of their purchase and subconsciously receive opinions. Not all of them have to be in your favor.
