get the 17x7.5 for style and width. the 16x8 would be nice because of the extra track but you might end up rubbing with larger tires.

when i had the rs lowered on teins ha's with kumho 215s it rubbed.

not the strut but the outerlip part of the fender.

Rolling them would help but i wouldn't try wide 215s or narrow 225s.

for the most part, 215's require a minor amount of fender rolling. i wouldnt go over 215, but i have seen a WRX with some 235's on it. the 17's would be my choice.

I dunno about 215's rubbing, but that depends on the offset. I was running 17 x 7.5's 48mm offset and only had to roll the rear fenders with 235's! :eek:

Since my car was lowered, I also had to remove the plastic fender linings from the front as well.

So, 215's on 17" wheels are typically ok; and 235's on a lowered suspension need fender rolling.
I know it varies from brand to brand, and suspension setup etc. But does anyone have 225's, without fender rolling and w/o rubbing issues? I really want 225's on 17" wheels, and never plan to lower the car more than Eibach Pro Kit height. I don't mind removing the plastic inside the fender...
