    All personal opinions aside - isn't there a point where stretching a tire that much becomes a safety issue? Hate to be the debby downer, but sometimes public safety needs a shout out.

    racecars don't have stretched tires?

    I'm with EJ though, not a fan of the stretched tires. Just doesn't look like you should actually drive on them when they're like that haha.

    To each their own though, yours is probably the best example I've seen of a stanced wrx that I actually like!

    Thanks mate! appreciate that!

    I think my set up is wide enough for me as it still rubs a bit sometimes. Idk if pulling the fenders is a good idea since only rolled them.
    So i guess it is fine with only rolling, unless you wanna go more aggressive offset.

    Cheers!

    I'm ok with rolling the fenders, but idk about pulling. Because i don't know anyone here that i can trust to pull my fenders, i'm afraid the result will not be good enough. lol

    Yeah i guess so, but that safety issue will surfacing only with certain condition, for example, when you driving like you are in track while using those stretched tires, or when you forget to check the air pressure of the tires. so as long as you drive calmly, and the stretched tires is not that crazy, i guess you will be fine.

    cheers!

    Possibly doing coils and trying to find some rims to get the stance I need.

    I definitely agree.

    You don't have the option to drive calmly when an emergency maneuver is required. I'd guarantee you'll get separation of the bead from the rim if you yanked the wheel and hit any sort of bump slightly sideways at the same time. Do yourself (and others on the road) a favor and don't stretch tires, especially that much. A 235 on a 10" rim is WAY stretched and WAY unsafe.
