Default 18x10 XXR 521 ET25 under stock 08 STi?

So my friend was wondering to put 18x10 XXR 521, ET25 under his stock 08 STi.

Do they fit? If not, what would he need to do?

if I could fit 18x9.5 +22 te37's on 265/35's, im sure your friend could fit something 1/2" wider with his gr chasis, mine is an 04 sti, lots of camber, camber plates, adj lateral links and rolled fenders, also, my car is a fully functional road race car w heavy spring rates, never rubs on hard, fast, sharp turns

its nice saying that my stance is like 3.5" wider per side then my stock 7.5 +53 bbs's (05-07 came with 8" +53)
its possible,

With only a roll? You are pushing -5* of camber to clear 265's on a gd. There is nothing functional about that.

I had 18x9.5 +19 with 245's, massive pull, and -3*f -2.7*r. There was no way I would've cleared 265's.

He's talking about the ridiculous size.

Super stretch, camber (meaning rear LCA's), and a roll all around.

It'll look stupid unless the ride height in the pictures.

I like how people preface everything with "my friend". We all know you mean YOU.

My friend did ask me to post this, i only drive an '99 Honda Civic.

He will possibly be ordering a D2 Street coilover also.
We're just wondering if they will fit properly witout hitting the calipers or something like that.
