2012 WRX rim on 2008 WRX

Postby my08 wrx » Sun May 08, 2016 5:25 pm

Just wondering if anyone has fitted the 2012 WRX 17x8 +55 (235/45/17) to a 2008 WRX. I'm going from 18x7.5 +42 (225/40/18) and on test fitting the 2012 wheel and tyre it looks very close to the strut and I'm worried it'll foul / rub. Car is lowered on H&R springs.

If it does not touch the strut at all on test fitting it should not foul on driving, the distance is fixed. Tyres might be the issue if you didn't have tyres on the rim when you test fit?
