I think 19's are over kill unless you have a SUV and are going to put DUBS on it. I have 18's and I think they are the perfect size not to big not to small

My turbo's fixed and a lot better =)

19's are for blinging escalades with spinners :lol: you would also loose a little performance if you put them on 19's are a little heavy for the wrx

I would go 18's. It is 2 plus sizes over stock, and the sti comes with 17's , so 1 size over sti. 19's will have too much weight, and will be much larger diameter than oem (tire + rim) , so you will be effectively making the gearing already taller than it already is... that's bad ). 18's are fine, with 225ish/40 18 tire size... Just lower the car around 2.5 in the front, 2 in the back to get rid off the fender gap.
