    9 inch wide wheels on a 2012 wrx.....

    Is anyone running 9 inch wheels on a 2011 or 2012 wrx with no fender rolling done, I don't plan on lowering the vehicle, according to a wheel chart as long as i stay around et 40+ they should fit. I have no desire to roll fenders but really like the look for a wider wheel.

    I'm running 8.5" W on my 04 and does not rub in front.
    Rolling with stock suspension so there is rubbing in the back with 3 people.
    I have been told by several people to not fit any wider than 8.5 and I strongly agree...
    Any wider and you probably will have to fender rollskiedoodle...

    Hope that helped :O

    I appreciate the feed back, I guess I will stick to 8.5 just hard to find many options in that size.

    No rub at all? Is that because of your suspension setup, what if it were stock? Also do you have a side picture? Maybe a close-up? Thanks.

    Looks good. I'm looking to upgrade wheels/tires soon to an 18" so I'm trying to figure out sizes that don't rub but I'm just totally confused with all the numbers. I've got 17" Rota Grids that I picked up 2nd hand and I really want to stick with the concave look. If you come are able to take a side picture I'd appreciate it. Thanks for the quite response. Matt
