hi all im looking to go with some 18 inch rotawheel(torque or p45 r2) . im gona try to go with the rota p45 r2 18x10 +25 or +35 with some 265/35/18(need to do a little bit more research) and im going to go with some p45r 18x8 with some 235/40/18 in the front with a +25 or+35.

my second option would be rota torque 18x9.5 +35 with 265/35/18 all around of possible. i would like to see some picture of wheels with similar size and offset considering i have original suspension and drop 1 inch. im pretty sure that the size i gave should fit considering im running with some 265/50/15 and they are 10.5 inch wide.

If your going to lower it you will need 235/35/18 for front you will scrape with 40s in my opinion. For rear you will want 245s on a 9.5 inch rim a 10 inch rim will overhang too much. Mind you real 9.5 inches actually measure 10.5 if your measuring rim distance. I would think 265 should be flush with edge of wheel and still may not work without coil overs or a spacer on rear as would bulge as much on the inside. Depends if that wheel is really a 10 inch which is massive i would think you will need a wide body.

I have 19's and car is lowered 1.7 inches i have flared guards i will use 235/35/19 no spacers on front may need to raise the front. and 295/30/19 rear. For a test fit i bought some used 245/40/19 they bolt on but wont be able to drive it with these so going for 235/35's up front i presently have 275/35/19 but have plenty of room on my rear with my spacer and will go lower wider for looks 295/30/19.
I still have the same levels to work off under my guards as a stock fiero so if it isn't going to work for me i will just tell you what won't work for me.

I dont have the rota wheels just a +35 offset.

If you don't mind going used and saving quite a bit of money, Rotas are VERY popular on subarus and the wheel classifieds at the NASIOC forums have a lot of them. They like to run similar offsets and widths too. Good choices btw!

Oh I forgot to mention--make sure you check the hub bore of the Rotas you're looking at. Even though they're aftermarket, some of their wheels are the 56.1mm bore meant for subarus, meaning you'd be boring brand new rims bigger, which may or may not be a concern.
