Fitment??
 
Anyone know if a 18x9.5 +35mm offset will fit on tein s-techs (-1.8in F/ -1.5in R) without a fender roll?

The stock wheels for a Legacy GT are 18x7.5".

With a 1.8" drop in the front, 9.5" wide wheels, plus an offset I'd guess you have some bad rubbing unless you went with a super low profile tire. And at that point you'd risk damaging the wheels and have pretty poor drive comfort.

It's not going to end well. Why do you have a different offset, because of the wide wheels?

I have 18x9s with 245/40s and the tire rear tire is close to even to the top fender. The tire definitely overlaps the non-rolled rear fender. With RCE Blacks, about 3/4" drop. have not rubbed.

So, 18x9.5 +35 is not going to stay inside the wheel well.

No. I ran 18x9 +38 on RCE's (-.75in F/R) and that was getting near my limit for comfort. Now if you're not worried about performance, then yes, you could probably stuff it in there and rub every now and then if you didn't get a huge tire on there too.

18x9 +38 with a 245/40 sit perfectly flush with the wheel well on my 10 LGT.

BTW I opened this thread expecting photos. I got screwed over.

Ah, but there was no paperclip icon next to the post!
