Default 18x10 Rota SVN e30 fit on a 11 5dr STI w/stock suspension??

Hi everyone sorry if this question has been asked over and over i tried searching but didn't get exactly what i was looking for. I'm looking to get Rota SVN's and was wondering if i could run 18x10 with a 30 offset with just rolling the rears, stock suspension, and no camber adjustments. And also if that is possible with no rubbing would 265 would be the appropriate tire with no stretch and all. Thanks.

Did you even BOTHER searching??? There are 2 threads at the very top specifically for these questions.

An no you won't clear a 265 on those wheels with only rolling the rears and no camber adjustment.... If those are your requirements or wheels, stop looking at wheels that wide. It takes time and money.

If you want zero fitment issues on the 2011 body with stock suspension the best you can do is a 18x9.5" +38 with a 255/35R18 or even a 245/40R18 if you don't mind a slight stretch. This thread is your friend.

Not to mention premature wear on your wheel bearings with an offset of +30. If u r looking to go 265 an 189.5 +40 or +38 offset would be more optimal and might get away with not having to roll your rear fenders at stock height.

Oops I guess u beat me to it improbus lol

At 18x10 +30 more than likely you will also need rear control arms to get the camber right even on the stock suspension. When you start to wander this far from the stock offset you are going to start noticing a steering difference with "numb" turn in and problems with the Scrub radius
. Again its not impossible to make these fit and people definitely do it but it takes time and money as sc00by4life said.
