18X8 5-114 ET45 KAZ KZ-Z
245/40ZR-18 Riken Raptor ZR SL all the way around
about 1” drop
Zero fender mods

Semi aggressive at best, with function leading form.

Handles like it’s on rails. Wouldn’t go any less than ET45 on the offset. Rubs slightly only in the front in tight corners, only after the drop - would either go with 235’s staggered up front next round or I might adjust my BC coilover height back up slightly higher if it starts to bug (but I can’t get over how awesome and FLAT this car corners). I’m not into the rims sticking out past the tires look = curb rash. It’s all about performance.

I'm glad your happy with your cars performance, but by your own admission it doesn't belong in this thread. On that note...

F 18x9 +42 225/40/18
R 18x10 +43 255/35/18

Front fenders rolled and slightly pulled
Rear fenders rolled

1.) Intended look B
2.) Looking for staggered setup want 18x8.5 front and 18x9.5 rear
3.) not trying to roll pull fenders
4.) what offset should I have and what size tires do I need... going to daily so I need some sidewall and I am lowered on BC BR coils.
very little stretch would be ideal

for 'aggressive' id say rolling the fenders is a must. you can always pay someone to do it for you if you dont feel comfortable doing it.

The rear is getting cut this winter for widebody and welds/slicks, but I would like to actually grip up front versus 2 inches of tire. I'm new here so

Do I A. purchase camber kit and maybe 17x9 +35

B. shutup and buy 18s for the front

did you use a 5mm spacer needed to clear the front suspension? I've been told a minimum of +35 is needed to clear a 9 wide but your set up is a +40. I'd love to run a square 17x9 +40 no spacer and stick a 245 or even 255 for track use.

1) inherently aggressive, for track use. I want to run 9 wide all around with sidewalls flush to slight stretch to keep sidewalls from folding over. -3.3 camber up front helps too.

2) 215/45r17 federal rs-rr (closer to a normal 225 width tire) on 2014 wrx 17x8 +51 with a 25mm 5x100 to 5x114.3 adapter making effective offset +26

3) I've rolled fenders all around, slight pull up front, front night pager rca's, battle version rear toe arm and refreshed bushings/ball joints up front. I'm willing to raise it up for better geometry out back and to fit a wider setup all around. will get UCA if needed to keep alignment within track spec after the raise. not willing to go 18

4) currently 2" lower than stock, willing to raise. it 1/2" to 1 inch if I can stick a square 17x9 +??? 255/40 or 245/40 tire. I've had 17x9 +38 255/40 rear and 17x8 +35 235/45 fronts and I didn't like it a whole lot. too much rollover on the sidewalls up front and understeers at corner exit.

main question is what offset minimum needed to run square 17x9 without a spacer? thanks

I've been told +35 by someone who races an IS and says his 17x9 +38 won't clear the suspension without a 3mm spacer (which isn't too bad) and he runs a 235/40 racing slick (close to a 245-250 street radial width) without issues but he's all fig'd out.

For a while I was running 18x9.5 +38 in front I had a little bit of clearance issues fixed by a 5 mm spacer for a while, eventually I got sick of the spacer and took a flap disk to the upper part of the spindle where it would hit and got the 3mm of clearance I needed that way. id imagine 17x9 +40 would be cutting it pretty close, might just depend on how the rear lip of the wheel is formed, some might sit back farther than the point where the tire sits which could affect it.

yeah 18's have a little more clearance since the barrel rests higher. your 9.5 +38 is equal to 9 wide +44 and no way I can fit that to clear the suspension. even with a 5mm spacer 9.5 +33 is equal to 9 +39. 18s have 4-5mm more clearance. but I guess I could just grind that if I went 17x9 +40. or raise it, then do 17x9 +35 and run the fattest tire possible
