Im buying rims very soon just picking them out but i wanted to bring this here because i've been told many different things, so I wanted to run a 9.5 inch wide rim on my 12 wrx hatch, will it fit without adujsting the camber? some people are telling me you can run up to 10.5 with a +35 offset, others are telling me you can even run past a 9 inch, lemme know what you know, thanks

    This should be in the wheel section of the forum, but for fitment its always good to:
    A. test fit a friends wheels
    B. Calculate offset based on your current wheels specs
    C. Try using some online calculators like: www.willtheyfit.com

    9.5 should be okay depending on offset, 10.5 sounds like a stretch hehe pun inteneded. Are you lowered? Slammed? stock height?
    BAASSSSSSS
    I work at Brian Reimer Audio on St. Marys, come in for some good deals, ask for Colin.

      9.5 +38 is a good fitment on your car. You might have to roll depending on how many homies ya wanna fit in the back of ya whip, or if you wanna lower it.

      I had 9.5 +34 and it fit very well.

      I rolled fenders on a hatch to fit 9.5 +22. I think the most aggressive I've done is 9.5 +15 on stock suspension.

      So yes, you can fit 10.5 +35, however it's pretty overkill for width. If you need someone to roll your fenders, holla at me.

        thanks so much, this cleared a bunch up, now i also know i can run the width i wanted😊😊 my fenders are already rolled in the back so il probably end up needing the front's done, i follow you on insta(mines denzelbrandford) so il end up taking you up on that, thanks bro❤️

          fronts don't normally need a roll unless you're super low/run an offset in the 20s with 245+ width tires
