with 205/40/18 and 215/40/18?
Im currently stock height and was wondering if the rears gonna need a roll or camber adjusment, and is stagered safe?

What would be a better safer setup with the 111's?
you CANNOT run two different size wheels on any AWD Subaru.

Not to mention that much stretch isn't needed with those wheel dimensions...especially at stock height.....

Using the same size front and back. And running two different size tires is a great way to destroy your center diff.

Thank you guys for the help, coming from the vw scene and things are different extremely, but thank you all again for the wise info.

Now which would be a better setup
18x9.5 et40, or 18x8.5 et35, not really looking to stretch tire size

You don't NEED an answer quick, it is not a physiological need.

Find an 18x9.5 et 38 with a 255/35, just like the million other people with your chassis.

I didnt NEED your response. I NEED some info from somebody who knows more about wheel fitment then i do being the reason i asked any of this, and not give me a hard time about it. I cant just automatically know what will and will not work with my car. We all started out somewhere not knowing any of this at all. If you have no help at all for me please refrain from posting then.
