2010 WRX. I'm sticking with my stock rims (powder coating them black). I need to decide on tires (winter tires are coming off next week). I do want to go up to a 235 tire. I'm lowered on EPIC springs. What kind of tire do you guys think? I'm looking for mostly street performance (mostly just 1st, 2nd and maybe 3rd gear pulls the redline here and there.) 300whp...315wtq.

Stick with the 225's. That's really the widest tire you should put on a 7" wide rim.

I like the look of the EKM3s, I have been looking at buying them for a while now. Where did you buy them from? Have you rubbed at all?

Bought them from eBay. These were Hypersilver, but the paint got damaged during shipping, so I painted them in charcoal gray.

I was a bit scared at the 45 offset because of some people I saw here, but them being 7.5 wide did the trick. It's only been a week, so I haven't had any rubbing yet. Looking at the way they sit on the car, I don't think they will because of the camber.

The tires, were also at ebay from lnltires (ships cheap), but I learned something when I went to install them... Ask for the DOT number before buying. These were DOT MMLR4508, meaning these were fabricated in 2008. The tire shop guy said he couldn't guarantee the tire won't deform or break during installation because of how old they were. Thankfully, mine didn't.

Around +45 to +48 would give you your best bet, especially the +48. I guarantee nothing!

Also, most would run a 245/35R18, the 245/40R18 is quite a bit taller then stock, the 245/35 is just a bit shorter.

And of course suspension setup plays a roll.

Roll the rears, and you can fit the 18x8.5 +35 if you stick with 235 or 245 tire
