Suggestions on what rotas and size to get for my 2012 wrx! Looking for something with a slightest aggresive stance but still enough of a track looking set up. All suggestions are welcome!

Do you want 17" or 18"? Most people run 17's for track, 18's for aggressive look. I have both...one set for track/auto-x (17"x9" +42) and one set for daily (18"x9.5" +40).

Are you lowered? If so, on what springs/coilovers?

If you don't track the car, then I'd go 18"x9.5". Offset between +35 and +44. There's a lot of option's for wheels in this size and offset.

Wheeldude has a great selection and I got my titans from there. Great customer service and they have a good selection of photo's from their customers for you to look at.

18x9.5 +38 is a solid choice for the 2011+ WRXs if you want a semi-aggressive setup. 265/35 tires and boom, done; flush with no stretch and good meat.

I am planning on getting exactly this set up 18x9.5 +38 with 265/35 tires on my 2011 WRX, I am lowered on RCE blacks and koni yellows, with 09 donor struts up front I believe I am an extra half inch lower in the front as a result.

I have two questions:

1. does this set up require any wheel spacers?
2. will I only have to do a rear fender roll with this set up or will I need to have work done to the front fenders as well.

Thanks for the insight

I would say they are perfectly flush.

The +35 versions should have a bit of poke. I plan to use these for auto-x and HPDE, so I'm happy with the fitment.

I'll get some better pics soon.
