I thought they were $650, but since I wasn't 100% sure I added $125

Thanks, I had been eye-balling the Type-F's for a while, and was fed up with the paper thin 265/35's on my 18" Rota D's. I wanted more meat for a cozier ride and I personally love the look of a fat tire.

assuming you're talking about the stock wrx wheels. you can bump up to a 245 or 255 but honestly it isn't really worth it on that wheel. just gets REALLY good tire in the same size.

i know there is some guy running a 265 on his STOCK wrx wheels, but it just looks dumb and bubbled and i would not recommending running too big of a tire for your rim, thats like the opposite of stretched

I think stretching to a wider tire way actually hurts performance more than going to one that is too narrow.

You can totally run 245/45s if you want though, anything wider is probably pointless. I had 255/45s on 17x8s they were ok I guess...idk

looks like this




and yes I know its the worst car ever and the wheels don't belong on it and are too small for it..lol

I think 255/45s are too tall for a WRX and for 255/40s or 265/40s would probably want a wider wheel

It's a little more complicated than your blanket statement. It's a tradeoff. Stretched tires = better steering response, pinched tires = more mechanical grip.

You can change your driving to compensate for the ever so slightly lower steering response, but there's nothing you can change about your driving to increase mechanical grip.

When you pinch tires there is a point where part of the is no longer touching the road thus giving you the same amount of mechanical grip as a narrower tire

Again, you are making another blanket statement, and it is more complicated than that.

Sure, there is a point at which contact patch will be lost with pinching tires, and it probably wouldnt take that much pinching to get there with some tires. But with most modern EPST's, the construction is such that you can pinch quite a bit, well out of the generally accepted range for the tire, and it not suffer from any adverse effects.

Because bigger tires are faster.
