Aftermarket wheels are an option, not a requirement. You have all the time you need. I'd recommend looking into different sizes and offsets. If you go too wide or don't run the right offset you may run into strut clearance issues.

Oh yea, the car is completely Stock, aside from the cut out diffuser but I donít think that really matters. I mean, what if I get the +22 rays, and save up money to get the chamber I need then lower the car

Yes Ik, but the tires arenít. I kind of need them immediately. My rear tires are bald and my dad keeps pushing me on getting new tires. So I thought get them all together while I have the chance

I would not get the +22s...
Even at +35 you'll need some negative camber to keep the fronts from sticking out. +22 is just going to be a disaster without significant camber and some bodywork.

Even with +35, IMO you'll want to lower it a bit and get significantly more front camber than stock to tuck the front tires in.

After reading all this.

Just get new tires for your OEM wheels.
You are WAY in over your head right now.

Think your best option might just be get new tires for stock now and then whenever it's time to replace the newly purchased tires then you can buy a wheel & tire package to allow yourself time to research and not rush into a purchase.

Just imagine how much money you will waste if you buy something that does not fit.
Here is some good fit advice.

I went for 17x9 +38 for my 57CR's. Like others have said, fitment is flush with the fender when running some camber (no more than 2 deg). 245/40/17 PS4S tires.

I honestly can't complain. It super grippy and looks/feels fantastic. I went with 17's instead of 18's because I did not want to mess with my speedometer. Mine is so far only a daily/weekend car until it looses its virginity to the track.

I see, after some time tho, I probably just gonna go with some KNPs instead of the rays, but if I do go with rays , Iíll come back to this, so I appreciate it

Those look super fresh too, I would definitely get those. If you go with a similar setup to mine you won't be disappointed!
