Not really, you can get 5x100s that are wider, but they cost exponentially more, are harder to find and tires are much more expensive for them.its pretty hard to see ideas if everyones running 18x8 and below
Just because of 5x100?
The STi comes with 8.5's now. 99% of performance oriented wrx owners are putting down more torque than stock STi's.[quote author=lurker]
to 99% of performance oriented wrx/impreza owners, an 18x9 wheel is just excessive weight addition to your rims. just not needed most of the time unless you only bought your wrx to impress the local 7-11 crowd
I said "only" because I'd think you'd need a lower offset to fit such a wide wheel and tire combo...but if others are doing it, I guess it's possible.if they are fitting them on WRX wagons I'm very confident they will fit the new body style
not sure what you mean by "only"? you want to fit the highest offset possible (as close to stock), w/ 9" rims and 275's mid 40's is probably as high as you can realistically go- any higher offset and I'm afraid you'd be rubbing inboard, I'm not overly fond of the new "aggressive fitment" that seems to be in vogue of late- low offsets put additional stress on the bearings also messes w/ scrub radius
