Default 2011 wrx hatch, braid wheel width question? how wide

Hi there NASIOC, so I have a 2011 wrx hatch, with the oversized fendar flares and I wanna do it right. How wide of a tire can i put on there in 15"? I plan on going with the Braid Winrace TCC but I don't know how wide of a wheel/tire i can fit. I want to look agressive. And with that what tire size? maybe 215, 65,15? http://www.braid.es/wheels/buscador.php, if u type in 8" wide, gravel, and 15" diamater

215/65/15 will be pretty close to the spring perch. if you want to run something that large, you'll need forester or outback struts.

my guess would be an 6-8 inch rim with a little less offset some were around 35-45. maybe a bit closer to 30 if you go with a 6inch rim. along with a tire around 225 60 15 or a 205 65 15. also the front brakes maybe too big to get a 15in rim on the car. i haven't tried it but some one may have.
