wider tires for wrx

I am looking to replace my tires and want to go with a little taller & wider tire. Looking at a 225/45 17, stock is 215/45 17. Checking the front end it looks like there should be no clearance issues. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated...

Upgrading tire width on stock rims?

This thread deals with the stock 16 inch wheel, but may help. It did for me and I chose to keep the stock size tire.

the stock rims in that thread are 6.5" and your stock rims are 7.0" wide... just keep that in mind. I'd still say you should stick with 225 wide. 225/45/17 is a great choice.

I ran 225s. Rubbed at full compression whilst at full lock steering which is pretty damn rare to get that. I was on 18s though and do not remember the profile.

02 rex is gone.
I defected to an evo :)
Evo is gone :(
Now I got nothing.
