That is an absolutely massive tire. I don't have personal experience with a 2007 STi but from what I can tell from dirtyimpreza.com (where everyone seems to try and jam the biggest tires possible into their wheel wells) 27" total diameter seems to be the very upper limit without a lift. 225/55/18 is a 27.74" tire.

stock? no way. you would need the lift spacers, coilovers to raise ride height, and lower offset wheels to prevent rubbing at lock.
