noob tire Q ?

got an 05 wagon with the stock 16's, did some searching and not 100% sure. Should I go with 225/50/16 on my wagon? or just get a better tire with the stock 205/55/16 #s I aslo read 215 is the widest for stock but 225 will fit? If so whats the best ratio for a 215 ? I need help on this one....

The problem with 215s on the stock rims is they leave you with a pretty significant change in overall diameter, whether it be smaller or larger. If you get 225s the difference in diameter will be minimal. It'll fit.

Wheel / Tire FAQ

I suggest new rims + tires or stick with 205/55/16

2015 STi: Still Stock
04 STi, 04 WRX: SOLD
