Those are def nice man! Very much my style as well. But that's always the problem. Nothing like that comes in the right size/width/offset lol!

Wish you weren't in Canada, I'd rock those wheels that everyone else dislikes. Although I may go a bit more aggressive, like +32

Hi guys, updating this thread..


Found wheels that are 18x8 +40 offset. Is that still too aggressive?

It's gonna look aggressive and def effect components a bit though. Anything under 45mm is too low for you.

What are they?

They actually got a nice lineup! I was just looking at their site. From your OP I would've thought you'd pick the "Kennan" wheel, but I like your choice too. I like the "Nemesis" although the specs are too aggressive. The new "Attack" is nice too.

+40 is too low of an offset for 8" wheels. It will work, but it's not ideal. It will have handling repercussions.

They won't look anything like the wheels in that picture either. They won't stick out that far and won't be concave. For something like that you need wheel width and a low offset. Far from a good setup on a Subaru.

Good point to add, Justin. Most pics you see OP (like the one above) are of like 9.5+ wheels with 35mm offsets as they "look better" for publicity of a wheel. An 8" 40mm will have fairly straight spokes.

I'm having trouble trying to find an "ideal" offset.

I'm set on an 18 inch wheel. Function is important - but would sacrifice a bit. Plan on throwing the eibach pro plus kit (springs and sway bar links), which is suppose to lower it about 1.5 inches.

Found another wheel which I like, its 18x8.5 et +48

Again, that's very aggressive but possible.

Believe me I know the struggle! Took me months to pick wheels...and the pickings are slim!!

I'm entirely lost.

I want to stick to the fast wheels line simply because.. I get it for cost.

What size/offset should I be looking for, I understand the higher the better but the highest offset they offer in an 18 is +48.

Going from a 7" to 8" wheel, you want that offset as high as possible.

The 8" is on the aggressive side width/offset wise, but it's not gonna kill you. A 35mm would be killing you lol! If you like em, go for it man.

I honestly like the ones I previously mentioned before, the 18x8 +40.

The 18x8.5 +48's are BBS CH knock offs



And Idk how I feel about them lol.

Personally, I like the first option mentioned a little better too.
