Here was my former set-up.
17x9 +38 Work CR KAI
245-40-17 S.Drive
With Tein SSP Coilovers.

No Rubbing on any of the corners.

The only had to roll the rear flat, fronts no need for rolling.


You should be fine with just rears rolled. If you plan to go lower on coilovers the fronts will need to be rolled as well.

Good luck. One more suggestion is once you put the wheels on get it professional aligned, and you should be good.

Never said anything about used, only that local tire chains have very limited options.

Did you have to mess with your camber to not rub? Don't wanna go too far from factory settings

I run 18x9 rota g forces et38 with 235/40 and I am fairly low (tucked) and I had to roll the rears, used a bat and out great. and semi rolled the fronts. I run -2 camber all around and only rub in the back over BIG bumps and if I go to fast up my driveway because of the curb. Rolling the fenders is pretty easy, just takes patience.

I'm not taking any chances. My '02 looks mint with fresh body work now.

SG02WRX, are those Rota Torque knockoffs? just kidding. Looking good.

Yes, I did and you will have to also. Like I mention before make a appointment with your local performance shop that does alignment, they'll give you the optimal settings to reduce tire/camber wear, and avoid rubbing.

You can also properly fit 9" wheels with proper tires and the right offset.

What do you mean by square?? is that good or bad??
