Default Sticky for Rim sizes and tire sizes?

Ok, so i'm new here and want to know more about the subaru wheel sizes and tires.
Just wondering if you could put a sticky up with this basic newbie info?

Like for instance... does a

18" Axis Se7en with 114 x 5 lug pattern and 42 offset fit the subaru?
Falken 215/40/18 tires.

I know most of you have been here for a long time. But a simple sticky with info about what size tires and rims do fit, would help newbies out immensly and would keep you from seeing multiple threads like this one.
Thanks

Good idea, but it won't work . What tires/wheels "fit" is dependent upon many factors, not limited to camber, how much the car is raised/lowered, and what struts/springs are put on the car. Beyond that, a 205/55/16 from manufacturer X isn't always the same (rarely ever is in fact) the same as manufacturer Y's 205/55/16 . I can tell you right off the bat a 5x114 pattern will not fit as it runs 5x100 .

Check the tire manufacturer's website for the specs.
