Default 03 WRX - OZ LS 17x7 +48 - Roll fenders?

I am about to replace the worn out stock suspension on my 03 WRX wagon with Tokico D Specs and Swift wagon springs, Whiteline Com C front strut mounts, H&R camber bolts for the rears.

I recently purchased a set of OZ Superlegerra 17x7 +48 rims and had them powdercoated BBS gold. Tires should arrive today - 225/45ZR-17 SUMITOMO HTR Z III XLs.

The Swift springs should drop the rear about .6", and 1.2" in the front.

So will I need to roll the fenders for this setup? Roll the rears only? Roll front and rears?

I'm just wondering if I need to set up an appointment or not. Of course once I get the wheels and suspension mounted it would be obvious what would need to happen. TIA.

The 7" wheel width isn't a problem but the 225 section tire likely will be since you're putting sedan struts on a wagon. 215's likely would not rub. In reference to the rear only, front should not be an issue.

Cool thanks. So maybe I should have gotten 215s instead but my buddy said 225s would be better. I don't feel like returning them though so I guess I'll get the rears rolled.

You might barely need to roll them , I ran 17x7.5 +53 V7 Sti wheels with sedan track width and a 225 with no rubbing at all.

Cool, though you did save 5mm with the offset. Were you running stiffer springs?
