Hey guys! I am looking into buying a set of 18" rims. The rims are 18" and I would go with a 225/40/18 tire. I also have prodrive springs on my 2002 wrx. I am wondering if anyone has done this combination before. Will the wheel tire combination fit? Any advice/knowledge would be greatly appreciated!

I don't know for certain if they will fit, however I believe they will. I have a 2004 with Perrin springs with a pretty severe drop and I run 18' Rotas with the same size tire, 225/40 18.

The 18' tire is the same diameter as your stock setup, or at least fairly close, due to the lower profile of the 225/40 tire. What size wheel do you have stock, 16' or 17'?

you hardly gave us any information to help answer that question.

what is the width of the wheel?

what is the offset?

Thank you, I forgot about the offset and width. :redface:

I am nearly certain I saw a 'what fits' tire and wheel guide on here somewhere, I just can't find it for some reason.

if your offset is 48 it would be a better choice to throw some some 235/40/18's on there. with prodrive blues you won't have any rubbing issues.

Oops. Sorry about not giving enough information. They are 18"x7" and the offset is 48. Hope that helps!

Hey! So, I decided to order them. I talked to the business and they have a fitment guarantee so no matter what I am covered. If everything works and fits I'll make sure to take some before and after pictures. Thanks for all your help!
