I am debating these or the Wicked Awesomes if I jump to a 6 pot brake setup

Do you have anyone fitting these on stock body GD cars ?

Also would there be any rubbing for the same setup?

I don't have any photos, but they'll fit. You'll be somewhat limited on the tire size -- I'd do a 245/35R18.

Do you offer a fitment of an 18x10 that will not require any fender modification or have any other fitting issues?
Currently on OE suspension but will be moving over to coil overs come spring.

No, but you really can't run a wide-enough tire to make an 18x10 necessary without fender modification. About the widest you can run on that car is a 275-width tire, and that's perfect on an 18x9.5" wheel.

Oh these wheels are too good! I'm eyeing on a set for my 2017 STI.

Why did you choose the 18x9.5 +42 spec? Besides the fact that they fill the fender wells perfectly. How does this spec affect the suspension geometry and handling characteristics over the OEM 18x8.5 +55 wheels? Do they alter the scrub ratio significantly?

I've been obsessing with these questions lately because every post I come across only is concerned about rubbing or aesthetics and nothing regarding actual handling. I even sent you a PM Dan.

Because you can fit a wide tire without hitting the struts or the fenders.

Wheels do not affect suspension geometry. The lower offset is necessary so the tires won't hit the strut, but the change is minimal -- 13mm. It's not enough to perceive any change in steering feel.

Quote:

The term is scrub radius. Moving the wheels outward relative to the car increases the scrub radius, but again, in this case it's not enough to have any perceptible negative effects on handling. Also, the wider track reduces body roll and increases lateral grip.

Hello the white car with #5 on the side in the first post those are 255/40 tires correct?

I read somewhere where the car was lowered on coils. Looks like you had to drop the back more than the front minimize the rake look is this true?

Also any fender mods for that car on that setup. Looks great.

Thanks
