Not the potholes fault, bump stops? Coilovers? Didn't you know it would destroy them if you don't have the correct roll/suspension/camber for those wheels?

bump stops, unless somehow you exploded them? or if you run coilovers, and you are that low with those wheels, what do you expect?

It was while I was turning ha. Not a big deal and I'm pulled and rolled with -3 camber in rear.

And previous owner had it bondoed so that's why it broke like that! Bondo doesnt flex.

I'm interested in getting some XXR 530s in 17x8.25. I'm lowered but not slammed on TEIN coilovers. Do I need to roll my fenders or should I be safe? I don't know much about buying new wheels so bare with me. Here's an idea of the ride height

You wont have any problems. I have 17x8.25 +35 offset on lowering springs and theres no rubbing issues. I have 225/45 tires. Youd be able to even run 235's if you wanted. Id recommend +25 for sedan fenders

You will need a roll. I'm runnin 527s 225/45 18x8.75 +35, and on stock struts and springs 02 Wrx I needed a roll BAD.. Now on Coilovers my car still rubs sometimes. But my spring rate is bouncy. That's what happens when u let idiots adjust ur coils for u...

I suggest a pull. I only did a roll.. I can't even go low, I raise my back from the bottom of the adjuster to the last spring loop (however u wanna say it), 6 and a half inches. And the front is lowered 3 and a quarter inches

+25 will clear them if you got the +35 you'll need 5mm spacers.

Well I got my bc br extreme lows put on and I just ordered my 527's.im going 18x8.75 +20 with a 215/35/18 tire. I I was trying to find a pic of the same exact setup but after 200 pages I gave up. I'm skeptical about the 20 offset, I know the 35 would have worked for a fact.

I've ran 18x9et20 without any issue. I had 215/40/18. My new setup is 18x9.5et15 with 225/40/18. You'll be fine without rolling fenders if you do rub it's be the rear ever so slightly. I'm rolled front and rear so...
