Tein S Techs, 18x8, +35, will I rub??
 
Hey guys, new owner here of a 2010 Subaru Legacy GT.

Was just curious if anyone here is running this setup and if you had any issues.

Tein S Tech springs
18x8 wheels
+35 offset

If I will have issues, can anyone recommend the most aggressive offset i can run with this setup without having any problems?

You will not rub. How low are the Teins?

I have RCE blacks with 245/40 tires on 18x9 rims +35 offset.

No rubbing.

Thanks a lot bro. The advertised drop on the Teins is 1.6" front and 1.3" rear.

Do you have any pics of your setup that you could post? would love to see it.

Remember folks, offset is dependent on wheel width.

the 9" wheel is going to poke out and in an extra half inch

Well, if minuccims's 9 inches aren't rubbing, Predator_ds' 8 inches will certainly not. :lol::lol:

What tire size are you running Predator_ds? That will be a factor as well.

I was planning on running 245 40 18.

My goal is to achieve as aggressive a stance as possible with minimal compromise to the comfort and practicality of the car.

Go for some 245/45/18, they are taller than spec, but will fill up the tirewell more, and overall fit the look better. There is someone here with 245/40/19, which has the same diameter as 245/45/18. Do a search, you'll find some pics there.

Don't forget to get rid of your spare if you go with a taller than stock tire to fill your wheel wells. If a new vs used tire is too out of spec for the AWD system, I can't imagine how bad a tire that is an inch shorter than the other 3 would be.
