Really? It's within about .1" depending on the brand of tires.

You're kidding right? It's pretty basic math.

205/50/16 - 24.07"
245/45/18 - 26.68"

Even if you compared it to a newer sti... The diameter difference is still over 1" taller than the 245/40/18.

The only way I could see that making sense, is comparing it to forester fitment. Which you didn't mention, nor was it discussed in this thread. This thread has been discussing impreza fitment.

This is a technical forum. You NEED to be specific or don't post.
