Hi ya,
Thanks for starting such an awesome thread ..... have been trying to work this out for some time now.

Plan is TRD coilovers leaving at the standard 15mm drop then on the front 18x7.5 +38 and rear 18x8.5 +30 wrapped in 235x35 tyres (I think as that gives only a slight speedo difference) - will this fit and be flush?????

huge thanks

Rear would be pretty flush, fronts might could use a spacer of about 8-10mm.

Need to address this typo first. +32 is indeed 6mm further OUT from +38.

If the goal is flushness, is stretching tires on a wheel required? I thought the fenders come pre-rolled.

The question stems from observation and this thread http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15323

Depends on how low you want to go I think, you can run stock height or 1" drop without stretched but if you want to go lower or run lower offset/wider wheels you will need to stretch.

Oh yes, I forgot to mention stock height. Although it will look off, I'm not ready to mess with the suspension geometry yet. Thanks for the info.

Would 16"x6.5" ET53 or 55 offset work for winter tires?
Rather not spend money on winter wheels at all but need to be able to move the car in and out of garage even in snow.

These are the original 2002 Impreza and Impreza WRX wheels.

Im looking to get the Work Emotion Kiwami deep concave all the way around. The only size they make them in is 18x9.5 with a +30 offset. Would this work with stock height? I dont want to rub or anything like that, obviously. Also would I need different tires for them? What would be the best tire size for them? Also, what kind of poke/sink look would I be getting with these? Thanks for any questions answered. I appreciate it a lot!

Gonna need coilovers to pull it off or you'll be poking by 3/8"-1/2" would be my guess.

He doesn't need coilovers.. Springs and an alignment would work fine.
9.5 is a lot of wheel though. Could run a 235-255mm tire.. Def aggressive fitment.
