Question Differences between Sedan/Wagon rear fender wells?

Are there any clearance differences in the rear fender between the WRX sedans and WRX wagon?

Basically, will a tightly fitted wheel on a sedan have the same fitment on the wagon also?

Thanks

Edit: I accidently put WRX STI instead of WRX wagon <--- idiot

In your post you ask the difference between the wrx sedan and the Sti, then you have a question about a wagon. Perhaps specifics may come in handy, ie; is it an 08 Sti hence the "wagon", or is there a difference in wheel well size between an '07 wrx sedan and an '07 wrx wagon. So to answer what I think is your question, you will have a harder time trying to stuff some 245's on the wagon than you would a sedan, except for the '08 Sti in which case you can get quite a bit of tire under there. Case in point; the '07 wrx sedan has a front/rear track of 58.5/58.3 and an '07 wrx wagon has a front/rear track of 57.7/57.3 so there goes about one half inch per side. Pinpoint exactly what it is you are wanting to know with as many details as possible and someone should be able to point you in the right direction.

Sorry, I'm an idiot. I corrected myself in the thread now.

Shouldn't say STI, should say wagon. Thanks for catching that.

Thanks!! That is very informative, even thought my question was goofed! Hmm, I didn't realize the track on the sedan is different from the wagon. Thanks again, that completely answered my question!
