Hey guys… I recently ordered new wheels for my 2010 wrx, and they are 17x9 +38.
Right now I have stock wheels (17x7 +55). Based on the calculations I've done I'll only loose 8mm of inner clearance with the new wheels, which is fine. I have about an inch of clearance (both front and rear) from the strut housing at full lock.
I've read a few forums now though stating that a wrx can not run 17x9's on stock suspension.
I don't see why not??? What is the issue here? I know the fenders have to be rolled but was hoping to leave the suspension until next year...
