    If you up to a 9 inch width from the stock 8" what offset would you run? I figure you've got to go to a +40mm to preserve the strut clearance. What about fender clearance? My guestimate is that they will stick out about 20-25mm more vs stock. That's about an inch. Do you think there is room?

    15WRX, i was going to go between 30-40mm, im not really worries about strut clearance as the new suspension is thinner, specifically, the 14 sti suspension. There should be enough room, as for how much they will stick out, i like the more aggressive look of a little bit of poke

    I'm running 18x9's with a +45 offset and 255 tires and there are no issues with rubbing or clearance at all. I would think on the 2015 you would be fine too.
