Default Will I need to roll my fenders?

I just bought a new set of wheels with tires
Aodhan DS07s 18x9.5 +35 offset, they currently have 225/35R18s on them.
With this set up will I scrape or will I be fine? Iím not opposed to rolling my fenders but wanna check if I have to before I do! Thank you

225/35 on a 9.5" wheel? do yourself a favor and get new tires. that's horribly stretched and begging for a blowout.

255/35 is probably what you want or 245/40 if you need more clearance

Assuming this is for the 2008 wrx in your profile... you are going to scrape horribly.

My 2010 has 18x8.5, +32 wheels and I had to roll and pull the fenders to make it work. The setup you've described has the rim extend 10mm further towards the fenders. Even with stretched tires, you'd need to modify the fenders.

Agreed- I wouldnít stretch the tires that much- plus makes for a rough ride.
