    Fitment help on bugeye!

    Hey guys, so I'm looking into purchasing new wheels and tires for my 02 wrx. I found some rota grids to buy, but I'm worried that they're going to require too much pulling/camber. I am running tein flex for coils. The Rotas are 18x9.5 +38. How much fender work would this require, would it need a ton of camber? It's my dd so I don't want to go complete overkill just want to put more traction down and sit flush. If there are better set ups out there for my needs then please let me know without being a complete **** I'm new to this whole fitment thing lol, thanks guys.

    I honestly would stick with 8.5" at the widest and offset should be in the 40's. this will be better fitment than stock without being super mad jdm hellaflush yo

    An 18x9.5 et 38 would require several things on a bugeye.

    A 245/255 tire if you ran a 255 that is just more rub or more work to not rub

    Coilovers- you won't fit those with stock struts/springs

    Rear camber bolts and -1.5 degree rear camber

    Rolling rear fenders

    I'd suggest at the biggest on a 02-07 being an 18x9.5 at a +40 offset. 18x9 et 40 would be a great look.

    Wheel gap has nothing to do with wheel size and everything to do with suspension. You could tuck stock tires with no issue on proper suspension.
