I did some searching and didn't find a answer. Will 235/50/17 Bridgestone Blizzak LM-22 fit on to a 04 Sti with stock suspension with out any major rubbing.

Like to know before I buy a used set and find out no fitty for me.

There's a good chance you'll rub on the strut since those tires are mcuh bigger in diameter. They're too tall IMO.

it would be real close, don't want to blow $100 to find out. think it would be best to leave it parked and get snow put on to the winter beater.

i put on 235/45/17s on my 04 sti wheels. the 04 sti wheel i believe is 17x7.5 so the widest i would recommend is 235, but i think 45 series would be closer to the stock diameter than a 50 series. 50 would be way too tall. also another thing u may want to consider is a narrower tire size might be better for winter performance. so maybe stick with the 225 instead of 235? 235 in the summer though. just my opinion. good luck!

Get a new set of 225/45/17. You'll be way better off.
