    Will they fit? Been Searching all day and been looking in the wrong places and phone is about to die. And will I be able to run 245 later on?

    Yes they should fit. You should consider stepping up to a 245 from the start. 7in wide wheels fit 235s easily. You'd be stretching more than you should...unless you're looking for herrafrush...

    I suspect you may need a bit of a rear fender roll.

    How low are you talking?

    Your setup should look good with those kinds of specs. Still may need a rear roll though.

    Any reason in particular for coilovers? You'd achieve a good stance like that with a good set of springs/struts and you'd have a much better ride quality as well as it would be a lot cheaper for better quality parts. Only coilovers worth spending money on are $1600+ or so for something like Feal 441s or KW V1s at the very least.

    Okay I'll look into a good spring strut combo, any recommendations? I want to try and avoid rolling if possible but if I have to I will but not too much

    How would these wheels fit on my stock 2012 wrx, Im guessing they would be fine as they are also 17's like the stocks. http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...ip&showRear=no
    Also does anybody have pictures of these wheels on a wrx? i saw the tirerack picture but that doesnt do much justice. People on Nasioc say they are heavy wheels also, but they are only 19.8 lbs while the stocks are aprx 22 lbs i believe. Just looking for experience/feedback from anyone, thanks

    i read somewhere that bbs actually makes these wheels, obviously just a lower quality considering the price. I doubt its true, just stating

    They do. They aren't terrible looking wheels...why not look at Enkei RPF1s? They look similar and are MUCH lighter.
