I like these, too. However, they do not come in 5x114.3!
I can't say for sure that the 18x9 with 40ET will work but I bet with rolling the rears they will work.

Also what tires would be best? Do NOT want to stretch tires or anything, a huge reason I bought this car is the handling, if this set-up is going to compromise that, I will have to figure out an different choice. Thanks in advance!!!

Don't want fender mods? You don't need wheels any wider than 8", with an offset of 42-48.

17's - 17x8 +35 at the lowest for offset but anything higher will be better.
18's- widest you can go is 8.5" like scooby4life said.
In my opinions 17's are the best choice. Lighter, cheaper tire cost and look better with stock brakes lol.

Hello guys I'm a new owner of 2013 sti hatch. I have everything stock. I'm thinking about getting a new set of wheels maybe 18's as long as it won't rub. Can you any one suggest what size of wheel and tires should I get? Maybe 18x8 or 18x9 and 225 or 235+?

year: 2013
model: sti hatch
wheel model: HD wheels clutch
wheel size/offset: 18x9 HPO
tire brand/model: falken 452
tire size:225/40/18
suspension: stock

Would this give me an aggressive look?


Thank you

02 WRX bugeye wagon. I want to use the stock 2011 WRX rims. Will those work? ( I know they will bolt up, worried about width and offset) What is the widest tire I can run without needing to roll the fender lip? If I roll the fender, what would be the widest I can then run?

This is on stock suspension

Does your hatch have 5x114 hubs?

You should do some research. Your thoughts on aggressive fitment are way off.

I always get confused when it comes to tires and wheels. I have tried to understand the offset stuff, but it never sticks with me. Just not my forte I guess. Been doing research and can't find to much for my car and year with this offset. I might have over looked it somewhere, but im pretty sure I didn't miss it. Just wanting to see if this size and offset will work on my car.

Thanks in advance

Depends on tire size but you shouldn't have any issues with a 225/45/17.

Yes. I would roll the rear fenders.

Just wondering how some Work XD9s 17x8.5 +32 would fit on my 2004 STI? My fenders are rolled and I'm on Megan Track series coilovers. Also a 245 tire! Would I have any issues? Need anymore work to fit these? Getting a good deal on used that's why the +32 offset rather than the +42
Thanks in advance!

Getting a awesome deal on a set of used.

may start looking to lower on struts and springs. not to aggressive of a drop. I figure I might have to roll the fenders a bit if I drop to low.

too much tire for that sized wheel at that offset.

you'll need to be in the 225-235 range and fairly aggressive camber if you want to get away with only rolling.

also - you might want to check brake clearance. Most LM/LMreps dont clear brembos without spacers.

Roll the rear fenders and you'll be fine.

Probably won't need any more work. If it does, it won't require much.

I would roll the rear fenders but you might not have to. Someone recently posted that they don't rub with an 18x9.5 +40 and 265s.

Just curious as to why you can't roll the fenders on 05-07 STi. What size tires would you recommend for the 18x8.5? 245/40?
