Question 18X7.5 with 42 offset ok?

The ones im looking at are ADR flights in an 18X7.5 rim with 42 offset. They are listed as fitting the WRX but with offset's on our cars I wanted to make sure...hehe

Its definitely not the best. Basically you create loads that your suspension and hubs were not designed for, so you wheel bearings might go sooner or the tires will rub. Im sure 42mm offset isnt unheard of, its just not the best considering there are plenty of rim choices available in 48mm +.

If you have to have them, then, by all means they will be fine. You may have fender rubbing issues in the rear and may need to roll them or increase camber, depending on the suspension setup and alignment.

They should fit fine, but it will be close. I would worry about the wheel bearing wear as you are only moving the wheel out by an average of aobut 6mm.
