Hey guys what's up looking for some help here and please no sarcasm
I have an 02 wrx and j wanted to upgrade not wheels from 17x7.5 to 18x9 so I did I found a guy with 18x9 265-35zr18in tires mounted and balanced he wasn't sure if the offset but on his 08 wrx narrow body they stuck out which I was ok with since I liked the pattern plus I assumed since my 02 has an oem wide body sort of set up it would be ok and as of now I'm right my back wheels stick out somewhat a quarter of an inch (+40 offset) I know you need atleast a +43 to make it fit but whatever my passenger side front is out about a quarter of an inch to half an inch and the driver side front is about an inch out! I did replace my axle and removed the camber bolts but put them back in as they were before I do plan to get a wheel alignment soon I know my body isn't bent I did a poor mans x check to see if the body was hit and it's not I measured from the rotor to the end of the stud on both sides and from the camber bolts to the end of the stud and got the same thing? Fenders aren't bent it bothers me because one side is almost in the fender like it should be and other on is out a little and it bothers me. Only thing I can think of is the camber on my drivers could be positive extended outward and the passenger side could be negative inward. Please help this bothers my tremendously
(Wheels are torque 5 spoke black with a chrome lip not my first choice but I don't mind until I find some 04 sti bbs wheels.
