Default 2010 wrx wheel fitment help!

So if someone could help me out with this that'd be really great. I have a 2010 wrx. I've been searching 4 days on the Internet and can't quite find an answer. I am looking to get some xxr 527's. For an 18 inch wheel they have 18x8.75 et35. Can I get this to fit on my car by just rolling the fenders? Also could you recommend a tire size for me? Would 235 35 18 work? Or would that be really small on an 18? Thanks in advance!

You didn't mention suspension mods, but that's going to be important to narrow down the fit/not fit...

If you go 235 width, 235/40/18 is the size you want, in order to maintain the right circumference.

Here's a picture of my car. 2010 w/ 18x8.5 +44's & 235/40/18's on koni insert/epic spring combo:



I realize this isn't exactly what you were asking for, but my specs put the tires essentially flush. No roll or pull necessary.

The XXR's you mention would move the outer edge of the wheel out about a cm or so (less than half an inch)...

Hope that helps somehow...

I have stock suspension... Thought I put that in there. And yeah that helps. With ^ that size tire with stock suspension and those xxr's do you think they would fit? Like I said I'm willing to roll

Congrats on missing the Tire & Wheel forum. On that note, please do some research.
