man, i thought my 255s looked somewhat wide on my car til i saw areg's 265s. i think i'll run that wheel/tire combo next :eek:

Year of STi:
2006

Wheels:
RPF1 17x9.5 +33f (5mm spacer to clear brembo), +38r

Tires:
255/40/17 Nitto NT05

Suspension:
RCE T2 with Vorshlag plates in the front

Alignment:
-2.5f -2.0r, 0 toe

Fenders Rolled or Cut:
fronts rolled, but i didnt need to roll it (just did it incase..). rears are hammered/pulled as it rubbed on stock body work.

Advice:
Our cars can swallow a lot of wheel/tire if you wanted it to. And still handle great. :D

Wheels: 17x9 +45 Advan RGII

Tires: 255/40/17 Dunlop Direzza Sport Star Spec Z1

Suspension: Cusco Zero2R with 12k/10k springs

Alignment: -2.4 front / -1.75 rear

Fenders Rolled or Cut: NO, but I'm going to get it done.

Other Body modifications: None

Advice: Stiff spring rates are probably what's keeping me from rubbing the rear fenders. And if it is rubbing, I'm definitely not hearing it. I have yet to try it out on track to see if it rubs under harder-than-normal cornering.

I'm pretty sure T3h_Clap looks here from time to time, but just in case, many thanks to him for the many questions he had answered for me. I FINALLY went with a 9" wide wheel man, lol.

edit: This setup DOES rub on the track, and when going over huge bumps on the street/freeway. Other than that, it's fine.

Here are mine. I just made the cut.

Year of STi:
2005

Wheels:
FNO1RC - Hot Version 17x9 +43

Tires:
255/40 Star Specs

Suspension:
RCE T2's W/ RCE front camber plates and Cusco Rear Camber plates

Alignment:
14.25" front ride height/ -3 camber
14" rear ride height/ -2 camber

Fenders Rolled or Cut:
NOPE

Other Body modifications:
None

Advice:
265 would be what I would like to run. Maybe the next time around. the 255's look slightly stretched. Also, I may got with a different offset in the front since there is sooo much more room up front.

Wheels:
SSR Comp 17x8.5 +48
Rota GForce 18x9 +35

Tires:
255/40 Bridgestone RE010
265/35 Nitto NT05

Suspension:
Cusco Zero2R 9k/7k, PDE front plates, rear camber bolts

Alignment:
-2.2F/-1.8R camber (street); -3.2F/-1.8R camber (autox)

Fenders Rolled or Cut:
Rolled front and rear

Other Body modifications:
removed from fender edge trim thingies, cut out some of the front inner fender liners.

Advice/notes:
Have to run 3mm rear spacers with the 17-inch wheels to clear the threaded strut body. No spacer necessary with the 18s. The 18-inch combination weighs 10lbs more per corner.

18s

Car : 2005 Impreza RS

Wheels: Street - Buddy Club P1 Racing 17x7.5
Track - Rota DPT 17x9 et 42

Tires: Street - 245/40/17 Federal 595ss on the P1's
Track - 275/40/17 Toyo R888 on DPT's

Suspension: Hotbits DT2 with 10kg front and 8kg rear springs, strut tops set at maximum, camber bolts used to tip wheel away from strut

Alignment: -2 F/R, ride hight is around 14" F/R

Fenders Rolled or Cut: No

Other Body Modifications: had to remove Rally Armor flaps in front, 275's would rub the screws that held them on and the flap itself at 1/2 turn, there is a bulge/lip directly behind the tire in the front fender liners that had to be heated and pushed in for 275's to achieve full lock without rub

Advice/Notes: all following info is for 275's.. tires are 2mm away from front springs at the top of tire, for fronts to get more camber the tophats will need to be machined so the strut will tip in more, rears have lots of room to springs, trailing arms and the wheel well beside that gas tank/ where rear passengers sit area both have around 10mm or 1/2" of clearance, rear tires stick out of fenders by 1/2 " but i do not have the fender flares of the '05-'07 STi

I haven't git any good pics yet as this came together today, but pics in this post should give you the idea.

Sti MY07
Prodrive Springs & Ohlins FPS
Camber -2F & -1.5R

Wheels Advan RS - 18 * 9 45 Offset
Tires Advan AD08 - 255 * 35 * 18

No fendor mods

Great fit, looks fat. :)

Update: No rubbing whatsoever on the street. On the track had a couple of small ones. Launched the car sideways over a ripple strip. When it landed the rear tire touched the edge of the fender lip, left some thin rubber shaving on the edge of tire. I put my hand on the lip and it's quite sharp on top of the arch. Only happened once so the back is pretty good.

In one 2nd gear left / right hander (very aggressive transition) I had a very slight touch on the front. Haven't had a good look to see where.
