    Quick question, will 18x8 +35 offset fit?

    Just bought some vsr storm wheels to put on my 08 wrx sedan. I am wondering if they will fit and what size tires I should use. I am wondering if they will rub. The car is stock height. Can anyone help? Been searching but haven't found anthing specific to this size and car. And the are 5x100

    probably shouldve asked before you bought them.

    anyway, 35 offset is too low for an 8" wide wheel.

    will they fit? well the 5x100 bolt pattern is correct, but we also need to know what the hubbore is to see if it specifically will fit a subaru.


    i personally would sell them or return them and get a proper sized wheel. (18x8 +48 is usually a good size)

    Oh alright. The bore size is 73.1. Also does it matter how big the lip is? I notice this happens a lot here people buy rims then ask the proper questions

    The lip size doesn't matter, just the offset.

    Those aren't really going to fit. They're over a half inch off on the offset.

    Ok Kool thanx. Any tips on what size tires I should get once I get the rims with the right offset? And also should I just go with 7 inch wide tires or is 8 ok?

    For an 8" rim the optimal size would be 225/40-18. You can run a 215-235 or even a 245, but a 225/40 is optimal.

    Oh forgot to answer the question on what tires. First of all, where are you? Secondly, what's your budget?

    With a budget like that, it's safe to say you can't afford 18" wheels. Tires cost more than that.
