That would be quite a bit of stretch. I have 225s on 8.5" wheels right now and there's stretch, so in my opinion, a 215 on a 9.5" wheel would look borderline retarded, putting it nicely. I think the perfect tire size for 2008-2010 WRXs that are on 18x9.5 wheels is 255/35/18; same diameter as stock, no stretch, decent amount of meat.
