SWRX - I'm running the Crimson K6 now, which is 18x8, but i'm running a +40 offset. Tires are 225/40, and i have NO PROBLEM with tire rub. I'm dropped on a custom Tein spring, that is a little lower then the S-Tech.
But it all depends on the type of rim if it clears or not with the offset. But i have no problems with these rims.
Check my post on NASIOC on the members ride, and you'll see my car and that i have no problem with rubbing.
Well...the wheels are on...i'll take better pics later!!
If the fender goes down (which I doubt will)...to half way down on the wheel...then...I might rub...but other than that...I love it!!! the front and rear wheel gaps don't look as bad as before...i'm even more happier with the h-techs now than evar!!
i was thinking about just rolling the freakin fenders and going with 245 or something ...but...didn't
Just trying to analyze with my limited knowledge...and poor terminology....doesn't horizontal travel of the suspention one of the factors that determine whether you rub or not? I mean, if someone's got really "stiff" suspension and it only goes up about 1 inch before the spring is maxed out (and the wheel gap is 1.5 inches), then this car will never rub, right?
I'll try to post some later today...I'm actually thinking about selling these wheels...don't have a price set...just thought about it...only put about 1000-2000 miles, no scratches or curb scrapes, perfect rims, tires have at least 90% left...
Well, it looks like you got your problem solved but for reference if anybody searches this thread, I have the Tien S-Techs, with Volk 18x7.5 w/ 225/35 and no rubbing on a wagon. Its REALLY close though.

I just replaced the OEM Dunlop Sport Maxx RT tires, size 245/40-R18 with Michelin Pilot All Season 4 tires, size 245/40-R18. The dealership did the mount, balance, and alignment.
On my drive home, I immediately noticed that the steering...
Holle Subi team , im very curious is its ok to run 17x8.5 front and 17x9.5 rear without hurting my center diff . Tire sizes are 235/45/17 front and 245/45/17 rear . If anyone has some real information please advise
Working on an 02 WRX sedan. As far as I'm aware it's the stock front swaybar. I installed the endlinks with spacers and they didn't look right to me, so I installed the other side without spacers and those didn't look right either. What do you think? Do I need to add or subtract a spacer or just...
So I have just added whiteline sway bars to my car and I’ve noticed a noise coming from the front of the car and it sounds like the sway bars either flexing something to do with the end links. If anyone has any input on that I know I was pretty vague but if anyone knows a something please lmk...
