nice, i was going to go with 18's if i do change my wheels out. also doing the 10 inch wide is also a consideration but i am happy to see someone else is trying it out before i do. how did you figure out what offset to go with? i know how to measure out the offsets and with my measurement its super close to touching the inner and outer fender unless the tires are not wide and your not going to tuck. another thing would be that the suspension is super stiff and you wont have issues. i used to run rears at 12kg on my subie. now thats stiff but it never tucked under on any dips or driving passengers. that was custom setting.

Well my 19?s are 10 wide... and we honestly took a shot in the air and hoped the specs we chose cleared the inner struts. There?s about 2mm inner strut clearance in the front and with the rear camber about the same. Wheels poked out and had to do pulled fenders to get them to fit.

The 18?s will have better clearance from past experience vs 19?s. I also am running a 275/35 on the 18?s and a 275/30 on my 19?s.

I have stock shocks with springs right now so not stiff lol

i do like the BC racing forged wheels they have. they have a lot of sizes to customize with. my other option was going to some advans wheels. i have always liked advan designs. i had some RG2 wheels before. i might do some RG3 for my next set.
