Lots of other things you need to take into consideration...is your car lowered, what size tire do you wanna run, are your fenders rolled. I have an 06 as well all fendera rolled, and lowered on tanabe gf210 springs, and I have 17x8 48+ with 235/40/17 no rubbing. It's a great size just my .02

May we see a photo of the car please.

235/40R17 is the JDM STi size and the widest tire that will fit on this vehicle with a stock ride height. I'd use an 8" wide wheel for this size.

Tirerack.com says that 225/40R18 will also fit. I'm running 225/45R17 on the same chassis which is the USDM STi size. You can use a 7 1/2" wide wheel for this size.

Like hawk_eye mentioned, if you've lowered your club spec 6 then these tire sizes may rub.

17x8 +48 is literally the perfect size for a GD Impreza.
