I am looking into getting some 18in. wheels in the future...along ways away!! However, I know subaru has some weird offset or something that limits the availability of wheels we can choose from...if anyone could reccomend to me the correct offset...size tires, etc. or anything else I should know...please help me out, I don't want to get some wheels and tires and have them screw up my car! Also, my car is lowered on H&R sport springs... thanks

Best offset is 48 mm for an 18X7.5 inch wheel. I would say between 45mm and 50mm is safe for the sedan. 45mm would be pushing it for a wagon.

Offset and diameter are not related to each other. How wide do you want your wheel? This would determine the proper offset.
