    Why do you want rims that wide?

    Well the rims I want look better when it's 9.5 then 8.5. The 9.5 looks like a deep dish. It's the rota grid.

    8.5" wheels will be fine with any width tire you want to run on a Subaru

    9.5" is a very wide wheel.... you'd have to use a very wide tire... and I'd assume you're looking at an 18" tall wheel...

    It's going to probably rub.

    If you like the dished look, my 17x8 RPF1's have a dished look, it's not deep though
