Default The right size tire that wont affect speedo

Alright, Im planning to buy Rota Grids 18x8.5. I have an 02 WRX bugeye and im running on tanabe struts, with tanabe lowering springs. Not sure how much it will adjust because im the second owner and the first put most of the parts on it. Im able to lift it and lower it. I need advice for the right tires that wont affect my speedo that much. If possible a brand and numbers would be nice. Any info is appreciated

Stock tire height for your car was 24.9", so you want to be close to that as possible for a correct speedo reading. Going +/- 1/2" really won't make that much difference though.

Like mentioned before, use the OEM tire diameter or circumference measurement and compare them to the specs of the tires you are interested in.
You can find these specs on the tire manufacturer's websites.
