    Ordering my wheels in a few days

    Hey guys just want to make sure I have everything clear before I purchase.
    I have a 2013 wrx hatch and will be ordering 18x9.5 +38 rpf1 with 255/35 conti dw tires.
    For suspension I am wanting to drop about 1" so I am going with rce blacks springs.
    I will have no problems fitting the rpf1 and conti tires with just a rear fender roll right?
    Thanks

    You should be right. I don't own that chassis, but from what I've seen and heard from others you should be good as far as fitment.

    Thanks man. I'm still undecided if I'm going to buy wheels and suspension for the spring or go stage 2 and put that money aside for a motor rebuild incase my motor takes a ****

    Look up any tire calculator...I think a 255/40/18 would be better fitment for tires. That keeps you within 1% of the stock overall wheel/tire diameter, so it won't mess too much with your speedometer.

    Your motor shouldn't crap out with just Stage 2...

    I would prefer a 40 sidewall as well vs. a 35. Anything below 40 is too thin to me. I like meat on my wheels.

    dude the yoko yk580 are beast. i love them. convinced myself to get 245 and im glad i did. looks so good and more ground traction. i kept my stock tires, they have a decent amount of tread left on them. not enough to where i would feel safe driving in winter with rain and snow, but any other season they are still good. so when winter passes im gunna throw them back on and wear them out and save the tread on my new shoes
