Default 09 impreza sedan LIFT

hey guys and gals im currently lifting my 09 Subaru impreza sedan 2.5i 1" all the way around. I was wondering if anyone else has done so and what's the biggest tire I can fit???

I'm starting off with a 1" spacer lift and was thinking of running a 215/65/16 with a BfGoodrich KO2

For lifting you may want these websites to help with figment.
https://www.willtheyfit.com
https://tiresize.com/calculator/

And General rules of thumb for lifting; For every 2Ē up, 2inches of subframe drop will he need. (So you donít kill your axles, bushings, and alignment.)

Im doing a 1" spacer lift for now until I decide to do a full conversion lift. I was thinking of going with a 215/65/16

Were you looking at just the strut spacer? I'm looking at doing a 2" lift on my Impreza with a RalliTEK kit that includes both the strut spacers and the subframe spacers. Not sure if a 1" lift is a small enough change to allow the alignment adjustment to be able to compensate.

Hey, I'm wondering how your lift went as I'm planning to do the same. Any problems you came across since?
