As the title states I am wondering how hard will these be to fit on my car ? I've looked everywhere and I've only seen these wheels on a GD Subaru once and the tires were super stretched, I'm not interested in that. I'm currently on bc br coilovers with front and rear camber plates, fenders rolled in front and rear, and I want to run these wheels with 255/35/18s. I'm not afraid to run some camber. So how hard will these be to fit ?

it will take a LOT of work to make that wheel/tire combo to fit.

rolled fenders all around, pulled rears, and aggressive camber.

generally, if you're asking how hard something will be to fit - you probably dont need wheels that big.

Would I be better off going with +30 or +38 then ? Since those would be easier to fit? The only reason why I wanted +23 D9r is because their the highest offset that clears oem brembos on the STi

You'd have better luck with the +30 or 38, but you can make the +23 work. It all depends on how much of a pull/roll, and camber you have. What wheel specs are you running now?

Do you have any more info on the picture you have provided?

congratulations for posting pictures of a car and a link to a thread with zero context on what work it takes them to fit, as I already described in post #2.

there are a million wheel setups that can fit, provided you know how to make them fit.

cool bud, i shared the pic and the link to the person who had the same specs he wants, hoping maybe he can message the guy, instead of having myself do it for him. anyways you will need a lot of negative camber -3.0 all around and some pulling since you want to run a meaty tire setup.
