Default New wheel help

I am looking to get a set of 18x8.5 +45 gramlight 57cr wheels but I want to make sure these will clear my brembos. I know it really all has to do with the spoke design because the size should be ok. I have 235/40/18 tires also. Will these fit without fender work? I have a 09 hatchback.

For questions of Brembo clearance with a specific wheel, my suggestion would be to contact the vendor. You effectively have an '04 STI - Brembos with 5x100 bolt pattern. If they can't tell you if the wheels will clear your brakes, they shouldn't be selling the wheels.

This page appears to indicate they will clear BRZ 4-pot Brembos. (The little black inverted triangle is listed as "IMPREZA (GDB 4POT), 86/BRZ Brembo".) BRZ Brembo 4-pots are the same calipers as STi Brembo 4-pots. Therefore, they should fit over your Brembos, assuming you've retrofitted STi Brembos to your WRX.
