Sorry I don't have pics for you, but at an autocross I saw someone with an '06 on stock rims with the 225 RE070. It looked AWESOME.

The 215 RE92 is a pretty dinky looking tire...

The stock wheel is 7 inches wide and the stock 04 STi wheel is 7.5 inches wide. A 225/45R17 tire will fit fine and the look will depend on the tire. Becareful with wide tires as the high offset of the stock 06 wheel brings the tire very close to the strut.

I think they are a huge improvement over the stockers. Really fills out the fender gap.

I bet squeezing those RE070's on a 7" tire was really fun!!!!
even though once they're on, they are great set-up..
