Trust me, you're doing more damage than good trying to get these to fit. I know because I briefly ran a set of tires this large on my 02. Your wagon has even less clearance than my sedan, and while the tires did look good (very meaty) they are too tall, and ruin the final drive ratio of the car. You should have noticed that it feels slower than usual. Do yourself a favor and source some 215/45/17 or 235/40/17 tires. If you can't find those, 225/45/17 will work in a pinch (that's what I run, and what came stock on the 04-07 STI). Good luck.
