I see this term a lot on the threads, and I am wondering what cars this applies too? Can someone also explain to me what this entails?

I have a 05 RS, and I want to get some of the OZ ultraleggra rims that are 17x8 with a 48mm offset. Will I have to roll my fenders or is this something that only applies to the older imprezas?

Thanks guys!
Justin

haha well of course... that would make sense! It would be nice to get around that, and not have to modify the fenders, if I can.

From what I have heard GDs have bigger fender wells so you should be good. +48 is a good offset for 8 inch wide wheels. What size tires do you plan on putting on them?

cool. i actually talked to a guy who has the same rims I am planning on getting. I was told that at stock height, no fender rolling is necessary. If I lower my car, I will have to roll the fenders. Cool! I am excited about it now.

It is alot more clear now about what it is! thanks AWDALBERT for that!
