Default 245/40/17's + STi + cobb sport springs = ???

Hey. I've just mounted my new 245/40/17's on the stock STi bbs's with no rubbing or any problems at all. I'm getting an alignment soon and wanted to get a set of springs before the alignment. My question is if I will still be without problems if I were to install the cobb springs. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the info. I had figured that much. I'm mostly trying to find out if the 245's will fit under there without rubbing.

I think they will fit.....unless it's a very wide 245 like an R-comp.

They actually seem fairly narrow for a 245. Still though, they are wider than stock. They're falken fk452's.
