    265/35/18. I run 18x9 wheels and use 255/35/18 and they fit perfect. The 265's are the best width for the 9.5 wheel if you don't want the tire to look "stretched."

    Oh I see. It will give me more of a beefy look.

    The whole point of getting a wider wheel is to run wider tires; not for that "stretched tire" look, which is just stupid.

    Just out of curiosity, why do you want to run 18x9.5 wheels?

    I live in Hawaii. And there's no where to be going fast. Island is small.

    If you're going for stance, do whatever the hell you want, but nothing I suggest will get you to your goal. Good luck.

    As mentioned before, 265x35x18 is perfect for 18x9.5 +40...friend of mine has that setup and it's spot on

    If you go 265x35x18 with a 18x9.5+45 on a 2012 WRX sedan, will any rolling be needed?
