Default 225/55-17 on BE Legacy GT?

Random question I couldn't find an answer for in the search: Has anyone run a newer Outback 17" wheel with 225/55-17 tires on an 00-04 Legacy L or GT? Think there will be rubbing issues cause of the height?

You want 225/45 17 to match to correct diameter. My car is slammed and I don't have any problems. I think the offset of my Torques is 48. There is a picture of my car in the Rota thread.

you will have rubbing issues, unless you raise the car up taller.
