245/40/17 Hankook v12 evos. 255 would for sure look better in my opinion. Scored a deal on a set of almost new used ones so, i couldn't pass it up.

I am lowered on coilovers, with slightly rolled rear fenders.

I can try and take some better pictures showing how these fit. Remember, some tires "fit" different. But, shouldnt be any issues with 255s if you have a 11+ wrx

Pics of how low you are? If you dont like the streched look, for sure dont put stock tires on these wheels.

V12 are a decent tire, not as sticky as I am used to. Ive always ran Star Specs/reo1r/rt615/ect for tires. But, im buying a second set of wheels for racing now.

omx- Are you coilovers or springs? If you plan to run that low you will need fender work.

I wouldn't recommend stretched tires, IMO its not safe, more prone to damaging your wheels and the performance is not optimal.

I am on KWv1 coilovers, I knew that I would have to shave/roll my rear fender. I havent seen the stock tire on a wider wheel so I was just curious

OMX, if you want to stay that low maybe the 245 is a better option for you, it will give ya a little more room.

I'll got take some cell pics quickly as a reference. I wonder if there is a way we could accurately compare our ride heights. I believe I am about 1.25 lower then stock in the rear.

The Mach 5 wheels have a lil less aggressive offset then the wheels we have, I believe they are a +42 which would be 7mm(small, but it adds up)
