Susp: MCA Coilovers (planned)

Rims: ROTA PWR 18x9.5+38

Tires: Looking at Michelin Pilot Sport 4 with either of these sizes (Feel free to recommend other tires!)




If there are other sizes that would suit it better please add them too!

I don't want to stretch my tires and I don't want to have flares.

If it's too much of a pain should I go with the less agressive same rim 18x8.5+44 instead?

I personally think the deeper 9.5 looks way meaner.

What else would I need to do with my suspension set up to make sure they fit?

With 9.5 wide if you don’t want stretch really you should to go 265. On my 2012 wrx I ran 265/35 on stock suspension and had no issues with rubbing. Rear fenders rolled. I’m assuming a SH chassis on coils will be similar. You can do 255 for sure but there will be a little stretch. But nothing crazy.
