Ok I went threw the first 100 pages and didn't find what I needed so I'm just gonna ask. Will a 18x9.75 +20 fit with out fender mods (for now) on my stock suspension 02 wrx wagon. I know it'll look stupid on stock suspension but it'll only be for a little while

hell no. not even close.

that ain't even gunna fit a wagon without SIGNIFICANT work.

SIGNIFICANT work.

I can't stress that enough. I've done similar fitments on wagons before, its HARD getting that much wheel under the fenders.

I would NOT recommend this fitment to anyone that does not have prior experience with VERY aggressive setups. That means you. You'll be getting in FAR over your head.

Not even if you used rubber bands for tires. Hope you haven't already bought the wheels.

Setup I'm looking for:

2006 STi
BC racing BR series coilovers
255/35R18 BFGoodrich GForce KDW
18x10 +30 Rota SVN-R

I don't want to slam the car. Just lower it enough for an aggressive look.
Let me know people!

okay, ive been looking through here for a while, what's the most aggressive functional fitment without stretching tire (I like the meatiness) I can fit on a 2008 WRX sedan, thats going to be lowered on coilovers.
I'm looking for 18x9 for the lowest width...
Of course I'll get a roll and moderate pull if necessary.
From what I've seen the 08s cant get too wide

if you want the most meat you can get, you wont do it on a 9" wheel on the narrowbody.

Why not?

I've seen 265 on a narrow body and it fit pretty good on 9" wheels.

I've got 9" and I'll be shooting for 255 with my next set of tires.

With enough fender work, anything is possible....BUT...

Monkiboy has extensive suspension modification to gain the camber + clearance needed for that setup. It aint gunna fit with "just coilovers" and a ****load of fender work. And I wouldn't call -3* on a street driven car exactly...functional.

I was thinking of Kyle's car... I can't remember what his handle was here.




That's 265 on a 18x9+35. All he (said he) had was rolled fenders and 0 camber in the front. Stock linkage in the rear.

Probably not the most functional, but it is certainly at the very edge.

Would Legacy GT 5-spokes on a '11 WRX work for a winter Setup? Everything else would be stock...

They will fit with no issues. With the 8.5 with 245 would be more appropriate than 255.

I have a 2010 impreza 2.5i wagon.

Does any one happen to know if a set of 16x7 RS six spokes will fit my car?

I am new to the forum but have searched all over here and the web and can't come up with an answer. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Wondering if these tires will be too big. Don't mind rolling the front if need be, or dialing in a bit more camber. Looking for more of a flush look than the high offset 2011 STI enkei's I had previously.

It will be close to your strut with that offset and tire size. I ran the same setup on my bugeye and had to run atleast a 5mm spacer. I am now planning on running a 17x9 et45 w/ a 10mm spacer with 255/40. Fenders will need to be rolled.

04' sedan, ksport kontrol pro coil overs, everything stock as of now.. Coil overs on the way. Just not sure on wheels and tires yet. A lot of it is foreign to me, I know I want an 18x9 or so, and I'd like to mildly stretch the tires on while clearing all struts and looking pretty flush. Not going real low because its my daily and I get to enjoy plenty of speed bumps throughout the day, but I'm going to definitely go as low as I can.

Just need to know what wheel size/offset, and tire size would fit.
