So for instance, on the GDA-GDB, you can easily get 245-40-17 to fit in the wheel wells without hitting the struts. Just get a +35 offset 17x8 wheel and get the fenders rolled. Anything more is a little more tricky...as such 245-40-17 is the optimal width for those looking for performance without having to do anything extreme.
nah....ya dont know ****
+35 is wrong and a 235/40 is better for the wrx as it lowers gearing a bit and makes the car accelerate better and there are a good few 235/40 s that are as wide or wider than most 245's too
