    So I'm running some 18x9.5 wheels with +38mm offset, with some 265/35-18 tires. Everyone else says that you need to roll the rear fenders, but T0rque says theres 0 rub with this. Which is correct?

    I would trust torque because he has personal experience running wider tires than what you are running. But if you are already running this then you should know if you need to roll or not depending on if you are getting rubbing.

    Oh right, I've ordered them already and I have some BC BR coils I'm going to put in too. If a roll was required I figured I would do it now before my stuff came in.

    I'm lowered on Swift Sport Springs, < less than an inch. Looking at 18x9.5 +35 offset with a 265/35-18 tire on a 2014 Hatch. How much roll will be required and is it possible to run issue free?

    Thought Id post a picture up in this thread in case it helps anyone out. Running Eibach Pro Kit Springs, drop is 1.4 front 1.2 Rear. Wheels are Rota Grids 17x9 +42 offset and tires are Goodyear Eagle F1 245/40/17. I needed to get hub centric rings for these to work as well just a heads up. I did not do any rolling, have had the setup on for about a week now and have not had any signs of rubbing.

    I don't think you 100% understand what hub centric rings are for. Let me explain, Hub Centric Rings are designed to fill in the gap between the hub of the car and the center bore of the wheel. The Bore of the wheel changes depending on what wheel you run. So until you know the exact wheel you wont know the bore and you wont know what size centric ring to get.

    They are basically a big O ring

    ^^ I checked with the guy who sold me the wheels and he checked and got me the correct hub centric rings and sent them along with the wheels, will be different depending on wheel.
