    Ok, I need some help again fellas. I'm looking to buy a new set of wheels. (No, I'm not going to say what they are. You'll have to wait and see. )

    Here are the specs I'm looking at:
    18 x 9
    +40 offset

    I am currently on 17 x 8 w/ +45 offset. As we know, fender clearance is not an issue with adding 18mm, even on the Epic lowering springs.

    My only concern is clearing the strut housing. I'll have 8mm less inner clearance according to this - http://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Wheel-Offset-Calculator

    Is this a non-issue? Should I consider a different offset? They are custom, so I can change it...that's your only clue.

    Thank you, wizards!

    RPF1's? I know the Rota's run 18x9 +35 and have no issues and Enkei has 18x9.5 +40 that works too, not sure if that extra 5mm is gonna cause any issues hitting the strut.

    There are a number of different wheel/tire combinations discussed here.

    Guide to fitting wheels and tires to the 2011+ WRX - NASIOC

    There might be some info there that will give you the answer you're looking for.

    I guess that's a lie on the front bumper lip as well since you do need to drill several holes, but the wellnuts and everything fit perfect and looks great when done. I'd expect the same from the side skirts. What site did you purchase them from

    You have no issues running this setup on stock struts. You won't have tire rub issues either even with a 275

    Are they the Cooper RS3-S tires? If so, you'll like them...
