Default Enkei RS05RR offset and tires

Iím trying to search the forums to find info on this but there are SO MANY pages to go through and I donít really know anything about wheels so Iím ready to be flamed.

Iím looking at getting the 18 x 10 RS05RR but Iím not sure if these offsets will work out. I would like to have the rear face setup but if I have to go middle than I will. The offsets are +22 or +30. I have a 2012 STi sedan. Also looking at 265/35 tires. What do you think of the tire size?

I appreciate the help in advance!

What exactly are you looking for in this wheel? Is your car a "stance" car? Do you want to run crazy camber? Is it a daily driver? Track car?

Even the +30 18x10" wheel is going to stick out, a lot. If you are not planning to run fender flares, I'd go with the 18x9.5 +45, or if you want something aggressive, 18x9.5 +35.

The 265/35R18 is a little skinny for a 10" wheel. It'll be somewhat stretched, but the diameter is good, so I'd stick with that tire size.

I plan to track the car, definitely not stance or anything. I would really like to run 10Ē so I can get that rear face but maybe Iíll go 9.5Ē and mid face. Even rolling and pulling the fenders wouldnít help with the 10Ē at these offsets?

At +30? If you're willing to totally mangle your fenders, sure, you can get it to fit, but it's going to look pretty rough.
