Sorry if this is a stupid question but would 18x10.5 +20 with 245 40 tires fit without rubbing? Or would any modification have to be done?

Wider tires, fender flare, coilover, camber adjustment. That thing will poke out like a mofo. Or you can join the cambergang hehehe

Yes, they're not "technically" required but they make mounting easier/simpler.

Camber will wear them out faster, yeah... But seriously... At that height and with those wheels, does he really need RS3s or ZIIs?

Ive read that at high speeds the wheels start to feel shaky also, is this true?

I've been up to 140 mph or so and no vibration. If anything is misaligned when you're mounting the wheel to the hub, you'll most likely feel it. I'd get them just to make your life just a little bit easier.

I can also verify this isn't true (assuming the wheels are centered properly)

Hey guys, I've read through this forum and a few others trying to find an answer without having to post on it. That being said this is my first time commenting or posting on nasioc.

I drive a 2016 wrx base model and I'm replacing the hideous 17x8 wheels. I'm currently deployed so I'm pretty much modding my car from over seas and can't wait to get home.

I've already purchased some MB Battles 18x9.5 +15 and wrapping them in some 235/40R18 tires. I am not opposed to rolling the fenders when I get home but if I don't have to I'm not going to just curious if anyone has tried anything like this or close to it and if so will fenders need to be rolled for sure?

Yeah I'm almost positive it will rub. 245/40/18 tire with 18x9.5+15 was reported rubbing. Height difference between 235/40/18 and 245/40/18 is less than only 0.4 inch.

+15 is pretty bad, dude. Why make your life so hard? Just get wheels that fit a bit better.

Thanks.
Notice how there is probably a 3/4inch to 1inch space between the outside of the new caliper and the inside of the wheel drum. An 18" wheel reduces total diameter by 1", but that clearance between the caliper will only decrease by half of that amount, or a 1/2inch. That would still leave a 1/4inch to 1/2inch gap in that area with an 18" wheel.

Plus these new calipers look identical to the JDM STI RA-R which had 18" wheels and still cleared.

Awesome, thanks man I appreciate it! I had it in my mind I'd be rolling the rear fenders for that set up anyways. Also that was reported rubbing on the stock suspension, correct? If you could give me a link to where it states that I'd really appreciate that as well! I'd love to get my hands on anything I can read so I can learn about this stuff some more. Still very new to the game. Thanks again man

It's tight but seems all good so far. I actually wasn't even planning on getting any ZE40's but I came across these local for a pretty good deal and snatched them up. Your pics definitely influenced me though.
