Pic Request: Satin Black Work cr kair vs. gunmetal on PSM STI

Question: If I went 18x8.5 +43 and 245 vs a 235 tire. Would I scrape. All I have done is Prodrive springs.

the tire also depends on aspect ratio.

if you went with a 245/35 18 you're less likely to rub then if you had a 245/40 18.

you shouldn't rub running a 235/40 18 with that 8.5" and +43mm offset.

well 245/40 18 is too tall by nearly 1"

and on an 18x8.5 +48mm and STi Pinks they rub in the rear (MY04) but my biggest concern is how close to rubbing they are in the front, with the front bumper.

if you want to be safe just go with 235
