Default Need help fitting 18x9 +25 on 08 WRX

So, I have a 2008 WRX on Stance coilovers and I can't seem to fit the rears that well. They don't have adjustable camber like on the fronts and I'm scared to drive on them in case I hit a bump and the wheel smashes my quarters. I have 18x9 +25 with 215/40 Federal SS595. What is the best and cheapest way to fit them? I need about 5mm-10mm of clearance. Some people told me an alignment shop can max them out more, but others told me its not possible. Also, fenders are rolled. Any help is appreciated.

Whiteline camber kit won't give you enough camber.

You need the Cusco arms most likely. Or the GTSpec arms. I think cusco is a better product though.

You should also get your fenders pulled in addition to being rolled.

Roll, cut, pull the fenders until they fit.

Stance isn't for you, it's too damn hard. Go back to your 17x7's.

You need camber plates which i hope you got for your fronts. The rears dont need them but you can get them.

Hope you dont rub and have those fenders roll or your juat going to do more damage.

Get them set the way you want your car to sit. Make sure they clear your struts or your going to need spacers

Get an alignment and figure out what you want to do from there.

Rrsearch please before the natives shred you to pieces.

yeah i have camber plates in front,
nothing in rear. i just want them
to fit the safest way. i was reading that getting aftermarket LCA's puts stress on your diff. idk if thats true or not. i just want to achieve the camber i need which should
be around -2-2.5 degrees. if not i guess ill just pull the fenders.

I havent heard anything about that either. But i have bushings everywhere so its tough to know.

You should be able to achieve that camber and not rub cause the well its negative camber your tire tucking.

I couldnt live w that camber hence the LCA to pull the lower control arm back and support it a little.

I am at -1.8 and -1.6 from -2.5 ish on both sides.

How stretched are the tires?

245 on a 9" wheel is a "mild" stretch.

215 is A LOT of stretch...

Never heard of that. GTspec rear arms, alignment, never think about it again. And, just roll the fenders, what the **** are you scared of? Trying to stance this car without doing any of the prep work. .

like i said the tires are 215 but run as a 223 and simple math shows that 9 inches is 228.6 mm which is a 5.6mm stretch.

and like i also said the fenders ARE rolled just not pulled.

just not sure of what to do next. either say f jt and pull the fenders or get suspension components to camber them more.

this is how aggressive wheel fitments work. We can post all sorts of solutions, but YOU need to just pull the trigger and figure out what it will take with YOUR SETUP to make it work.
