I've been browsing around for wheels for the Foz, and I have stumbled across a set of 18x9.5 +38 Rota Grid in Titanium chrome that I have fallen in love with. The car currently is sitting on the OEM foz struts, with 2007 STi springs. I don't plan on lowering it any more than this, since it's my DD and the roads here are ****. My main concern is if these will clear the strut housing without rubbing, and will clear a 245/45/18 tire on the outside without rolling the fenders.



Current height for reference on stock wheels and stock 215/60/16 tires

On a slightly unrelated note, you know running an impreza spring on the forester struts will ruin your strut, right?
I'm quite aware. I'm planning in the future on replacing them with something more ride height friendly (coilovers). At the current moment, the struts are almost worn out, and I got the springs for free. When they finally blow, they will get replaced.
