Question What's with the stock tire size on the '08 WRX?

They gave us 7" wide wheels, but put 205 width tires on them.

Wouldn't a 215 be a better fit?

Also, why go with a 50 sidewall on that suspension? Surely, they could've gone with 45 height without ill effect.

Any theories?

Thanks, but I was really asking why Subaru went with a 205 tire on a 7" wheel.
