I am a fairly new owner to a 2016 base wrx. My first mods are gonna be wheels. I'm looking to upgrade those 17" wheels to 18". I've done a bit of research and looking for some final advice before I pull the trigger on ordering some wheels.
My goal is to have a flushed look, a tiny bit sticking out is ok. Not extremely meaty, but not too thin either. I live in the PNW where it rains often, but doesn't really snow. I've come to the conclusion with the following:
wheel + tire:
18x8.5 +40 offset in 245/35/R18 tires
A more meaty combo:
18x9.5 + 42 offset in 265/35/R18 tires
Are those combo's okay in terms of clearing fenders without rolling, fitting correctly, not requiring stretched tires, etc?
