Default *request* stock sti wheels and susp. with 245's

Like the title says. I've been searching for a while now with no luck. I'm really close to replacing the worn out stock bridgestones with a set of falken fk452's in 245/40/17(or maybe 45/17..haven't decided yet..any advice would be appreciated on this also) on my stock 05 STi wheels with a completely stock suspension and I was hoping to see some pics before my purchase. It'd also be great to hear some more first-hand experiences with the fk452's as the reviews are somewhat limited. Thanks in advance nasioc.

245/45/17 or 40/17 will fit fine on the stock wheels with stock suspension. You might have some rubbing issues if you lower the car with certain springs but if you go the coilover route with height adj. you will be fine. If i were you I would do the 245/40's...they are a little closer to the stock diameter and have a little less sidewall height to help with steering response.

I have no experience with those tires but I do run the 245/45 RT-615's....with coilovers though!
