245 is too wide for an 8" wheel. I would run the 235 on the 8" wheel, if anything, but I'd prefer to just skip to the 8.5" wide wheel and the wider tire size below.

255 is again 10mm too wide. I'd just run the 245/40R18. That's the stock STI tire size, and it fits an 8.5" wheel perfectly. At +45 you'll not have any rubbing.

Hey y'all,

Tirerack.com doesn't list an 18x9.5 for my car, the 2013 wrx hatch. But if i set a brz as my car, it has an option of the rear wheels being 18x9.5 with an offset of 45. My question is, will I run into fitment problems with that wheel and an 265/35 18 tire? The bolt pattern matches at 5-100 but i'm not sure what the bore diameter of the wheels are. Will I have problems when driving the car with full capacity, 4-5 passengers? Thanks y'all!

The car is on stock suspension.

Are they the Enkei Raijin? They should fit on stock suspension, hub bore is the same, but the type of tire you get might force you to roll the rear fenders.

Sorry, I failed to put the wheel. Its the T6s. Should I stick with the stock size tire?

I'm running exactly that on my 2016 WRX. 18x9.5 +45 with 265/35 tires. No rubbing issues. I'm lowered on RCE yellows and -1.5* of camber all around. But I'm fairly confident they'll be fine on stock suspension as well.

I'm also pretty sure that the 11-14 and 15+ cars share almost identical fender space and offsets. But I'm not sure if there's any variances from sedan to hatchback.

They are different cars with totally different sheet metal, and they have different clearances. Your experience with a 2016 is not helpful for someone with a pre-2015 car.

You will have to roll the rear fenders.

If you don't roll the rear fenders, definitely Yes. If you do, maybe still Yes.

I know. But stock offset is the same on both cars and fender clearance is very very close even with the difference in bodies. 18x9.5 +38 (common) fits about the same on both generations. At least the sedans.

Default I need help

Dear friends!!! I plan to install the Advan RZ2 r18 9.5jj +45 offset wheel disks with the tire Advan Neova AD08 245/40 r18 on the Impreza WRX STI 2010. Would they rub against the rear fenders? Will they stand on Brembo in front?
Thanks for any answers !!!
If you have a photo with such parameters of the disks on the car, I will be grateful !!!

Thank you Tyler and Mach V!
What if I run the 245 on the wheel? will it fit? Also am I to expect a "harsher" ride on 18's versus the 17? will I also "lose performance" as other people say?

Yes, a little.

What other people say what exactly? Generally speaking, the 17" wheel/tire setup will probably be lighter, so maybe there's some difference there. Could you perceive it? Probably not.

That depends entirely on the wheel offset.

At +45 you should be fine, especially with a 235. I run a 17x9 +38 Rota Titan and a 255/40r17 RT615k+ (Which runs really wide) on stock suspension and I get minor rubbing in the rear over significant bumps. I hear them scrub a few times a week tops. Lowering soon and adding camber which I'm hoping will alleviate the rubbing.
