The 17 limited runs 245/40R18 Dunlops, but your point still stands.
I did a bit more research and there are a ton of people who back you up on your statement.
"Aside from the implications of going to low of an offset (reduced steering response, heavier steering feel, tramlining, reduced tire contact patch, increased wear and tear on everything between the steering rack and the hubs, etc), it's really too wide of a setup for non-track use"
There are a few peeps, who have tried and tested the 18x9.5 +38, they say it fits with no rubbing issue with a 265/35R18 on a 15' wrx
I don't even want those anymore so, I'd probably want to stick with something like:
18x9 with +42 to +50 offset
18x8.5 with +45 to +55 offset
Next up would be suspension components clearing.
From what I know, the 18x9.5 at +44 will clear the stock struts on a 15'
And that coilovers will generally have a bit less clearance than stock springs.
Assuming I go 18x9, I think anywhere between 42 and 50 offset would be okay right? Assuming a 255/35R18 tire
Also good news! I found some SSR GTV02s that are +45 Offset, 18x9. It's within my range
I know there will be a slight chamber with new wheels/tire, I think the alignment will fix that; so assuming that I can put the coilovers/wheel+tire myself, is it possible to drive to get my setup aligned? Still need to grab a lowprofile jack, and some jack stands.
