I don't really rub in the rear that I can notice. On bc coils with pretty hard dampening. But the front rubs a lot. I'm gonna cut out some of the liner tomorrow.

Go with a wider rim to not rub? Am I reading that correctly?

Edit: I finally lowered my front end another inch. Man it looks so much better to have zero gap. I don't know why it took so long.

That's my front and rear right now.

The front doesn't rub at all, it's cambered and lowered to the maximum.

The rear rubs on bumps when I'm alone, but with multiple people it rubs even when I'm cruising at 25.

I'm setup about the same as you and have the same rubbing issues. It's not bad at all really.

If I worked my fenders I'd be fine.

My fenders aren't touched. Healthy camber and a decent wheel/tire size is an easy fit.

I got camber plates for the front only. Should I get some for the rear? I only got camber bolts for the rear.

I guess you guys are different than the GR and my rear is more of a wider body so the rear is perfect with a flat roll. The front I did a slight roll but I think I need to camber more with the bolts.

Yes, it makes life a lot easier. I can only get so much camber from the bolts before I start to rub the strut. With plates I can get another 2 degrees.

It's an obvious difference. The GR accepts MUCH wider wheels than any previous model.

That, and 04-07 STI rear fenders SUCK for rolling. I'm not looking forward to grinding mine.

Yeah you can adjust your dampening force that way.

Hey guys I got a few newbie questions, kinda new to the whole tire/wheel thing. I'm looking to get some 527's for my 09 wrx hatch. Stock suspension right now but looking into coils later on. I can't figure out what size/setup tire wise to get. Probably 18/8.75 wheels but I have no idea what offset and such to get. Too many options with this stuff. Sorry for the annoyingness I've done a lot of research and still can't figure it out so I figured I'd just ask. thanks

I have a 02 Wrx with 527s 18x8.75 +35 (offset).. The offset is the deepness in the center of the rim. Tire setup you should run a 225 or 235. With a 40/35 series. I'm runnin 225/45.. My height is too tall :/

I have 08 Sti with 18x9.75" +20 XXR 530's running a 235/40 tire and I'm lowered about 2" all around. If you want easy fitment then I'd go with 8.75" +35 they seem to fit without much modification to fenders etc.

Yea, just a roll you'll be fine. I had to pull my rear panel and they still rub.. No luck lol

Why a 215? I'd go with a 225 or 235 if you want less stretch.

Already had a 235... And it was bad.
On another note I want stretch but not a crazy amount. I need a 215 so I guess 215/45 it is. Also I was confused because on tirerack it says a 215/40 would fit up to 8.5" wheels and 215/45 up to 8" wheels. So I assumed 40 would stretch less. Thanks for the help.
