Offset on the Works is too high. You want +15 or lower

Depends on the wheel shape and spoke design. However if you are running +15 or lower there is going to be more then enough room typically.

Any info on that fender duct? Mine runs up through a fog light hole. That looks a lot better.

Can anybody running these on just a wrx chime in? i had a few questions as to what wheel specs you guys were running and how hard it was to find a wheel wide enough with a 5x100 bolt pattern. Also i have been told before that running such and aggresive wheel/ tire combo can cause damage to the wheel bearings because they are smaller than STI ones.

Why do I see several cars on here not using the lower front section of the front flares?

I'm assuming that the tire rubs on them since most people running the flares have such wide wheels. But what I am wondering is what do the people running the full flare do to add the extra clearance.

I could be wrong though.

Depends on how much caster they are running and how wide the wheel is.

I have no clearance issues on mine.

+20 is too high. You'd want a 5mm or 10mm spacer with those.

+1 depends how much caster they're running. I also have no clearance issues on mine. 18x11 +10 with 5 degrees of caster.

18x11 +20 will be ok, but +1 to what apetron said

Thanks! I'm not opposed to spacers but I would rather not drive with them. I just need some wheels to drive around on until I get the money to get some ccw's. but if I'm doing the flares I need to do them now before I get the car re-painted

Does anyone have a step by step thread on installing the flares? I've heard it of different ways and I'm just curious before I go and purchase them this winter

Default fitment question

so i have a 2005 Impreza , Planning to buy Enkei RPF1 18x10 +38 and 25 ISC Adapters to change the bolt pattern , so i will be running +13 offset , and 285/35 tires , my question is will it be big enough to fit flares or i need to get 10.5 or 11" wheels ? , notice that i can't buy the 18x10.5 +15 because of the offset and adapters , because if i do i will be running -10 offset , which will be too much.

285 tires on a non turbo impreza seems a bit much but if you are just going for the look like most are these days you'll need at least 10.5 wide wheels to justify the flares. Maybe even a 5mm spacer as well...
