Hi all,
I have an 09 wrx stock tires and rims. I bought rpf1s 18in 9.5 wide 45 offset. I was told by multiple people I would need 245 40 tires. My question is will the front rub or will I need spacers. If anyone could help I would appreciate it

245 is narrow for a 9.5" wide wheel...Not sure if it will fit under your fender, but a 255 or 265 is the right size for a 9.5" wheel.

There is a very good chance you will need to roll the fenders. The 2009 is the "narrow body" and does not have the fender clearance that the later models have. IMO those wheels are too wide, but sounds like you already pulled the trigger. 17x8 with 245s are ideal. The bigger wheels just add more unnecessary unsprung mass.
