Post 08 Impreza 2.5i Wheels... Help Please

I got a 08 Impreza 2.5i with 16 x 6.5 +53 wheels and I was searching for a 18'' wheels. I found the Tenzo DC-5 ( 18 x 8 +45 with 225/40/18 tires ) at a very good price and I want to ask your opinions about if they will fit my ride or should I have problems with it...

If your not lowered I wouldn't anticipate problems. The ranger for proper fitment of 18s on any imprezza should be between 38+ to 45+.

I used to work for discount tire and they have an extensive fitment guide, so when in doubt give them a call. I'm sure the sales people at tire rack or discount tire will be more than willing to help you.

i believe they will rub if you go with "recommended" tire sizes. If you go smaller sizes and stretch you should be fine. The max ive ever run on my 08 2.5i sedan is 18x7.5 and i had minimal clearance.
