Default Tallest tire that fits sport impreza

I'm wondering if I can fit 225/50 or 55 on my 12 Impreza sport with no rubbing. Has anyone tried this?

Here is a picture of an early model impreza wrx with the Xv rims and tires. The XV tires measure out to be 225/55/17.

Since Impreza sport limited wheels are also 17", so I assume we can put the 225/55/17 on to the stock Impreza rims? Will that mess up the odometer a little with fatter tires. My tires are almost due. I think the stock 17" tires are too sporty, gets too rough in bad roads. I'm looking to get a fatter tires to get a more comfort ride.

Is there enough space in the wheel well without rubbing during turns or hard bumps?

17x7.5. 225 will be fine. You will be traveling faster than what the odometer is saying. The faster you are going to greater the difference. Or you could pick a soft side wall tire.
