Lightbulb Maximum rim size for GC8 97-01 Impreza 2.5 RS

Hey I was wondering if anyone knew the max size rims I could put on before having rubbing issues. Car is a 01 impreza 2.5rs GC8

Is it possible to fit 18X8's 48 offset, or 17X8 48 offset, or is the max lower?

i ran 17x7 in mine, but I felt if I went any bigger width wise I would hit, you might be able to get away with 7.5 and especially if you want to lower your care you may want 17's with 18 and lowering the ride will be extremely harsh

The stiffer you make your ride, the wider you can go. Stiffer means you won't hit the fender. I eventually wanna go with 17x8 on my GF4, but we'll see about tire choices with the factory 16x7 (looking at 225/45/16 ADVAN A048).

if you get the right offset you can possibly fit bigger than 7.5

Do you plan on getting the fenders rolled? If so you can get bigger
