Default Winter wheels

I have a perfectly good set of Nokian winter tires I want to use on my wifes car.

Will the following wheels fit properly (inside fenders, not rub on anything, etc)?

Canadian tire part number X41557
15 diameter
6 width
5-100
(I think all the above is okay, her is the questionable info)
Offset 36.5mm
Hub size 57.1 mm


please follow this format:
year: 2016
model:Impreza Touring 5 door
wheel model: Canadian Tire (see specks below)
wheel size/offset: 36.5mm
tire brand/model:nokian H7
New tire size: 195 65 15

The stores database says its a fit, but I thought Id ask people who know. Thanks.

The car has, from the factory, 16 wheels and 205 55 tires.

suspension:stock
alignment: Stock
fender mods: none
spacers: yes/no? No

fender mods: None
spacers: None

These tires are definitely a step up from stock size but somehow fit like a glove! No rubbing, even at full lock, and they actually drive really nicely other than the tire noise. Perfect winter setup, as it gave me an additional ~1 inch of sorely needed ground clearance during winter storms!

I am looking to get some continental winter contact si's on some steelies but wondering what would fit for a 17" wheel as far as 7.5" or 8". Want to be sure they clear the brembo's. Then if 235-45-17 would fit on them. I have rear rolled fenders. Thanks in advance.

I have a 2017 WRX. Is it at all possible to do 19 inch wheels with an offset without rolling fenders or adjusting my suspension or camber? I want to maximize the wheel size and offset as much as possible with just wheels and/or spacers.

Yes, but youd need to compensate by reducing tire size.

Just ordered some TC105N's (hoping they look better an person than some of the pics I've seen online). I've got someone offering me a good deal on potenza re11's that are 275s, but I have a feeling those won't work without a lot of fender work. Any suggestions on this?

figured I'd throw a second one up, because I'm curious how the volks fit...

year: 2016
model: sti
wheel model: Volk ZE40
wheel size/offset: 18x10 +34
tire brand/model: undecided
tire size: 275/265?
suspension: H&R street performance coilovers
alignment: stock
fender mods: fender rolling?
spacers: yes/no? size? no

Will this require a lot of fender rolling, or fender pulls as well?

Default the wheel fitment thread: keep it drama free

How low can I safely go with out major rubbing on 18x9.5 +38 with 265/35 in my 2011 WRX?
Am currently sitting on Eibach springs (approx. 1.2 inches lower then stock(?)) but I am buying coils soon and want to go another inch (maybe inch and a half, if I can) lower.
Rears are rolled pretty well.


Thanks
- Klaus

Default Fitment help

Year: 2018
Model: WRX base
Wheel: Verde Parallax
Size/offset: 19x8.5 38mm offset 5x114.3
Tires: Flexible
Suspension: Stock
Brakes: Stock

It looks like this setup would poke out a bit and I might need to roll the fenders to fit it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I think I've about reached the end of my own comprehension after doing my own research.

I'm mainly looking to slap them on and go without needing to modify suspension or fenders.

Default Tire + wheel fitment

Curious to get some input on wheel fitment for my Impreza and potential tires to go with that may work. In all my research I can only find folks running these on crosstreks. Unable to find anything about the Imprezas

year:2016
model:Subaru Impreza Sport Limited 5 foot
wheel model: Stock. Wanting to run MR502 VT spec 15
wheel size/offset: 15 15mm
tire brand/model: General grabber AT2 or Yokohama Geolander AT/S Go15
tire size: grabber ATs - 205/75r15 or 215/75r15. Geolander ATs - 205/70/R15 or 215/70r15
suspension: Stock. Will be adding subtle solutions 1.5 spacer lift.
alignment:
fender mods: N/A. Rally armors on the car..
spacers: No

Trying to find out if I will be able to go from stock to these MR502 15 VT spec wheels on my Impreza, with a 1.5 spacer lift. I know guys run these wheels on the crosstreks, stock or with a lift usually without issues.

Curious what tires listed above will fit with this wheel on my Impreza or if a different tire will fit better, what that might be.

Hoping to run these wheels with AT tires.

Thanks!

Wheel: Work Emotion D9R
Size/offset: 18x9.5 +23
Tires: Most likely 245/40/18
Suspension: Stance coilovers, camber plates all around

Now I want to know if these will fit with fender roll and camber. I havent seen too many with the same setup so Im just trying to make sure before I purchase the wheels.
On a side note what do you guys think of bronze wheels on a grey STI?

Already have Gram Lights 57DR Mag Blue in 18x9.5 +38. My Evo friend gave me his old 245/40/18 Yokohama A13C tires for free. Plan on test fitting them on the wheels to see how much fender work needs to be done. Since I'm local to Mach V, I likely have them modify the rears and lightly roll the front if necessary. I'd like to eventually fit 255/35/18's if the fender work provide adequate fitment.

My question is are the Tein Basics too soft for this setup? I don't want to be slammed since I daily it but aggressive street is the look I'm going for. Here's how I currently sit on my summer setup.




Almost identical but I have 30mm spacers in the rear and 25mm in the front

Default Request for Fitment Assistance

Year: 2007
Model: WRX Limited
Wheel model: SSR GTX 01
Wheel size/offset: 17x9 +38
Tire brand/model: Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position SL
Tire size: 255/40R-17
Suspension: KW v1 Coilovers
Camber plates: Mooresport DMS Motorsport Adjustable Rear Upper Mounts

Fender mods: None yet
Spacers: None yet

Looking for some guidance on a rear fitment issue. When I set the camber on the rear upper strut mount bolts to max negative, the back of the tire scrapes the coilover strut. Would getting an 8mm wheel spacer and extended studs allow me to set the needed negative camber and resolve this issue?

I realize that I'm probably going to have to get my fenders rolled in addition to the spacers if I go that route, but before I make the purchase I'd like to know if that is the right direction to go in or should I try something else.

Thanks
