Default Torques on my 09 Rex....

How wide can i go without rolling my fenders on an '09 wrx 5 door?

I wanna get some Rota Torques but they don't look that good to me if they are not concave...

I am running Gram lights 16x8 +45 offset on my 2.5i. I'm using oem 205 potenza's and looks like I could go 225 easily and maybe 235 tires without rubbing.

Might be able to get away up to 8.5" wide?? At 8" the rim lip is sticking out/flush with the front fender

Depends on offset, with correct offset people run 8.5 with a 235 tire no rubbing.
