the wheel diameter really has little to do with fittin the wheels. the width and offset have more to deal with it than anything. on stock suspension you can almost fit anything because you've got miles of space to avoid rubbing. however, all the specs you guys have mentioned should fit without issues.

i run an 18x8 +35mm with 225/40/18 tires. i run about 2.5* of camber all the way around (which is way too much for my setup, i know), im really low, and i dont rub except for on my front inner fender liner on turns. most wheels are easy to fit with minor (yes, rolling fenders is minor) fender work.

I'm no expert but I'd say you'd be fine I don't think you have to roll until like 9" wide.

On a side note I'm getting my new suspension installed tomorrow and then I'll post some pics!

For 08+ you just need a minor roll in the rear for 9" wide wheels and a little camber all around. Depending on the offset, of course.

EDIT: Bio248 nailed it!

Not a great photoshop, but I was soooo bored! My car taking on a nuclear winter! haha

Please don't stalk me, I don't care to hide my plate number. People with a vanity plate never do... why should I? haha

People see your plates everywhere on the road... there's little danger in showing plate number on a forum.

Unless they work for the RMV and want your RPF-1'S!


Anyone with an 08+ hatch running just an axelback? I want one for aesthetic reasons, not for it to be obnoxiously loud

if the axleback is tame you should have no problem. im running a turboxs unit, which is a 2.5" magnaflow muffler. it sounds great and the motor drowns it out under heavy throttle. love it.

Im loving all the stock and aftermarket wheel pictures guys! Lookin Good.
This might be beat to death or not but I just have to ask ,
it might be different for the 11's and I know sedan's are definitely different but does anyone know of any aftermarket front lips for a 2011 2.5i hatch? I know their's a DIY garage door lip and its not bad but I just want something that looks a little bit nicer as well as sturdier. Other than that, keep up the great pictures!

**Im on stock suspension with oem wheels too (for now at least)

I'm preferring the diy on mine, with semi-maxed coilovers I would have destroyed a few lips if they were urethane or anything else by now, 2 lips, $14!

I think I'll take the risk, I love the look of lowered subies but I dont think I will ever go lower than maybe an inch of stock height haha
