Default SSR type c 19" 38+ fit on a 2012 STi

Trying to see if anyone has tried fitting SSR type C's with 38+ offset on their STis, worried mostly about brake clearance, spacers and rolling fenders, thanks!

There are stickied threads that deal specifically with week fitment.

Wheel diameter means absolutely nothing or us.

Offset without wheel width means nothing to us.

We need more info when you post this in the appropriate area.

I'm sure you can get them to fit. Most +38 Wheels require a spacer in the fronts to clear the STi Brembos. Remember with a large wheel of that size you will have to run a tire with a low profile sidewall in order to match the rolling diameter within 2% so your speedometer isn't affected. I would take some time and read through this thread for fitments on the 2011+ WRX and STi's there is a lot of good information in there. I would assume with a 19x9.5" you are at least rolling the rears.

Use The Wheel Calculator to make sure you fall into the 2% rule. The way this works in you put in the stock wheel size offset and stock tire size. Then you put in the new wheel and tire size. When you do this you will see the affect on the speedometer and clearance which should be within 2% of the stock rolling diameter. Hope this helps.

I would assume the tire size you will be looking for is a 245/35R19, 255/30R19, or a 265/30R19. I think the 255/35R19 and the 265/35R19 will be too tall for a 19 inch wheel and surpasses the 2% rule but my math could be wrong.

^^ offset means nothing in regards to brake clearance.

and 9.5" wheel doesn't automatically mean you need to roll rears.

True Offset means nothing and spoke design affects it more but I believe the Type C's have a concave face believe so the brake clearance is up in the air. I believe the 18x8.5" variation does clear JDM brembo's but I am unsure if there is any difference between the JDM Brembo and USDM ones.

Yes I agree "need" to roll probably isn't necessarily true but as a safe guard for himself if he plans to lower in the future, it may not be a bad idea.

They offer this same size/design in a 19x9.5" 5x114.3 +45 which would probably have lesser fitment issues.
