They also run 26" tall from the factory instead of 25" tall. That of course makes all the difference.

I'd look at a 245/35/18- that's a very suitable tire for that rim width and should still fit w/o too much drama on a WRX (possibly some rolling of the fender in the rear).

I had a set of CE28N's- one of the best rims made- strong AND light- nice looking too
Only read this reply and you'll be fine.

Congrats on some sweet wheels. What color did you get?
