Didn't find any opinions about Japan Racing rims. What do you think about these specs, would they fit? My biggest concern is if they clear the front brembos? 9.5" width has more concave, but not sure could 18x9.5" ET38 255/35R18 fit.

model: 2003 Blobeye STI
wheel model: Japan Racing JR21
wheel size/offset: 18x8.5" ET38
tire brand/model: Toyo Proxes T1-R
tire size: 225/40R18
suspension: D2 coilovers
alignment: Unknown yet
fender mods: Rolled fenders
spacers: No

Thanks in advance and greetings from Finland!

I have an 02 TS wagon. i am just wondering if 2018 crosstrek wheels will fit on the stock suspension. right now i have the factory steelys on there(195/60/15) and im looking at a set of 2018 crosstrek wheels, the 18 inch wheels, with stock tires on them. the seller has not sent me the actual tire size yet, pretty sure the wheels are 18x7, but they are off a 2 week old crosstrek. according to subaru.com they should be 225/55/18. if anyone knows about this fitment please let me know! thank you!

model: 2002 Impreza TS2.5 wagon
wheel model: 2018 crosstrek limited 18" wheel
tire brand: Falken Ziex ZE001 A/S? (factory subaru tire)
tire size: 225/55/18 (factory crosstrek tire)
Suspension: stock
alignment: not known yet
fender mods: none/stock
spacers: no


**UPDATE**
2018 18" Crosstrek wheels do not fit a 2002 TS wagon on stock suspension. it rubs the strut.
In related news, would anyone be interested in a set of practically brand new 2018 crosstrek limited wheels?

Default Finally Installed my wheels!

year: 2006

wheel size/offset: 17x9 +35
tire brand/model: Bridgestone Potenza RE-71
tire size: 255/40R17 94W
suspension:BC Coilovers
alignment: not sure, have to get it redone
fender mods: Rolled, no liners
spacers: No



I'm pretty sure that I'm at about -1.2 to -1.5 degrees of camber all around, I had the alignment redone years ago when I picked her up, haven't had it done since. So far, only slight rubbing in the front if the wheel is turned and the car hits a deep dip, other than that, no issues.

Really could use some help as Iím looking to buy wheels/tires soon. Mine are extremely bald.

Questions/Concerns: As far as I've found on this thread (I didn't read all the pages but enough that my eyes hurt) they should fit but I will have to roll fenders correct?

Also, I'm fine running some negative camber, the wheels I'm looking at will need a bit of TLC before I get tires and install them, so getting camber plates/Group N top hats/bolts will be done by then.

Question 2007 Impreza 2.5i Special Edition wheel/tire fitment HELP

Good afternoon.
I wanted to make it clear that I'm very new to vehicle modding, so some constructive criticism will be greatly appreciated!
I am considering buying this wheel/tire setup for my bone-stock Impreza, since I got a decent deal on it, but using the "search thread" tool, I cannot seem to find anyone else with a similar setup:

year: 2007
model: Impreza 2.5i Special Edition (Obsidian Black)
wheel model: Bremmer Kraft BR14
wheel size/offset: 18x8 +45mm
tire brand/model: Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport
tire size: 245/40R18
suspension: bone stock
alignment: stock
fender mods: Hopefully no
spacers: Hopefully no

Again, I am considering getting these because I am keeping an eye on this decent deal, plus I think the wheels look good based on the image on Tire Rack. When doing some research, I keep seeing thread posts that say that one should use 235's instead of 245's, or to get 35% instead of 40%. I'm not sure if the tires would rub against the stock suspension coil or the fenders at all. If it will, there are some 17" wheels that I am looking as well, but I will have to look at other tires.
I wanted to make the wheels be somewhat flush with the fenders instead of the stock look where the outer part of the wheel was 1-1.5" inside of the fenders.

Thank you for your help in advance.

It comes down to the tire brand. With Bridgestone Potenza I'd stick with 235s, as they run wider than Japanese tires. If you were going 8.5 on the wheels 245s would work but may require slight rear fender modifications at 18". With the stock suspension though, you should be fine.

To me, 255s seem a bit big for a 17x9, as i had 255s on my 18x10s, and now have 265s on my 10.5s, and believe me I'm not a fan of stretched tires (although I do have the 35 not the 40). To answer your question, It should fit just fine. I had my fender liners removed to accommodate my wheel setup, but you should be alright with those sizes. Just to be safe, I'd maybe have some spacers on hand or camber bolts (hopefully your coilovers have the option to add camber plates) just in case you need to free up 5 mm or so.




Jumping on this Convo since I am trying to fit 18x10 38 work xd9. Iím sitting on bc coilovers and rolled fenders all around. I do not want a lot of camber but know I will have to dial up a few digits. Which tire size will give me the least amount of camber wear 255/35 or 235/45. Also leaning towards federals 595 if that matters

255/35 will be fine. 265/35 could rub depending on the tire specifically (different brand run a little wider than others) but might get away with it considering -2.2 camber. If you want to be safe, and not worry about it, go 255/35

I was running that exact setup with the same wheels and springs. (You posted in my for sale thread. If you zoom in my the pics you can see the tire size.)
18 x 9.5 NT03s with 265/35/18 tires.
Suspension is stock aside from the RCE yellows. No fender rolling needed. Absolutely no rubbing.

I would be interested to see any 265/35 tire that does not work for 2015+ WRX or STi.

Depends on what you mean by "work" I guess?

On a 18x9.5 +38 wheel I've heard alot people say they rub (over bumps) in the rear and end up rolling rear fenders. As i mentioned this does depend on camber setting too but it's possible.

Personally it wouldn't worry me, but whenever someone says specifically they don't want to rub or have to mess with their fenders, it's fair warning.

I was running 18x9.5 with 265/35 +40 on RCE yellows with no rub whatsoever.
