I'm digging the idea of 255/40-18!

Any negatives in reality? Its like, what, 1.21% different in diameter compared with the stock 18's, and 2.71% compared with the stock 17's? Shoot, that's doable. Hmmm contemplations..

I'm with you on the 255/40. 265/35 is a close second. I think as long as I can fit the 255/40 on stock suspension I am happy.

I just put 18x9.5 +38 Enkei RPF1s with 255/40/18 (Firestone Firehawk Indy 500) on my 2018 base, stock suspension. Fits fine, no rubbing. I like the look of the extra meat on the tires.

Thank you for these pics, much appreciated! The 255/40 looks super meaty, and sits nicely flush. I think I will probably want to lower the car a tad, but we'll see once I get my wheels on.

Yeah I told myself that by putting the 40 series tire on that it would help me resist the urge to lower the car...it didn't work. I'm currently debating on which springs to get now. It never ends.

Here's a 255/35/18 Federal RS-RR on an 18x9.5 for reference. Really wide tire - fits like a 265. Nice, square, non stretched fitment on a 9.5.

It's actually a 250, but nah it hasnt even seen dirt in a while. Our RMZ450 and RM250 2 stroke have been getting a lot more use.

I just put my wheels on today with brand new TPMS sensors. The tire shop programmed them but on the drive home the TPMS light came on. The were off when I first left the shop. I called them up and they said it might take a little while for the light to go away after I take out my old wheels that were riding with me. If it doesn't go away in a couple of days to take it to Subaru because they aren't sure if their programming tool works on the newer Subarus. After I took my old wheels out I drove to work about 4 miles away and the light is still on.

Does anyone know if they changed something for the 2018 WRX that would make their tool not work anymore?

You have to get it done at Subaru, same issue with my 2016. Subaru will usually do it for free (at least my local Subaru does), takes about 5 minutes.

I had my local mechanic program new sensors to my 2018 WRX. He used an Ateq system to read the codes from each wheel and then plugged into OBD2, but it only had up to 2016 so I asked him to try that. When he programmed them the light was still on but turned off after driving for 2-3 miles.

Did you drive on the Tires with sensors first? I researched this a lot and found out the sensors go to sleep to save battery and will wake up after driving. If they’re having trouble making it work you might need to drive more first to wake em up.

No rub in the rear, but my rear fenders are rolled.
My fronts rub very slightly on really big bumps, but the fenders are stock. Will probably get them rolled as well soon or add a little more negative camber.

Dont raise! Low is life haha
