Default Fitting XXR's

What will it take to fit a set of 18x9.75 XXR's, particularly the 530's +20 with 225/40R18's or 235/40R18's? 2002 Subaru WRX Sedan. I have Megan Racing Coilovers, adjustable top plates in the front, and rear camber bolts. I have talked to a couple people who say just roll fenders, others are talking about much more. Thoughts?

Forgive me, I am new to the Subaru scene, and I have searched, I just can't find anything on these wheels. Apparently they are new this year.

if you are worried about fender mods/fitment. thats not the size for you. I don't see the point to taking away functionality just to fit some uber wide wheels on the car. you will need a crap load of negative camber, fender roll (probably pull), and your tires will be stretched to **** (taking away performance/safety). if you are just looking to hard park, i guess thats ok? i would personally go with something closer to +35/+40 for less poke and less modifications, going with an 18x8.5 would be better (245/40r18). the only way i think wide wheels look good are with MEATY tires, not some puny stretched tire to make it fit easier

you would have to cut...yes CUT the fenders and make a widebody

and anybody that puts 225/40's on a wheel that wide is an idiot
