I'm hoping my wheel guy will be patient and dry fit a couple of sets of rubber for me.
I'd find a good custom wheel shop near by and take car there this time. It may cost 5-10% more than online, but they will usually help custom fit by trying different combos. Then you'll know tire size next time if you chose to order online or a box store. Just my 2cents

Not sure why you would want 255 on the impreza... That a lot of $$$ for purely aesthetics. It wont improve handling or traction.

it's not for aesthetics...

because that's the size that's 'required' for a 9" wide rim (according to tirerack)...I could do 245 but didn't want too much stretch on the rubber.

And also because using the calculators, the 255/40 will give me the closest to oem diameter and height.

Thanks for the help.

The MAX rim the 225 will fit is 8.5" wide.

Seems that my safest option is to go 245 or 255...otherwise the stretch will compromise the tire.

Fitment is the main issue now...will they rub the inner wheel well???

I have the '11+ WRX wheels that are 17x8 with 245's on my car, and my car is lowered.

I was thinking about getting them in gold, but I think I might save my money for some Braids or get Team Dynamics instead.

Stumbled across the OZ Leggenda. The matte black one is EXACTLY what I want. But it doesn't look like they make it in 5x100.. :/

They'd look great on our car as well, just like these OZ Rallies do:

Overall looks cool, but the camber in the back looks a bit funky.

Looks like I'll be swapping the silver Rota Attack v2's out this weekend. Picking up a set of black Enkei RPF1's. Should be interesting.. Pics to follow.

Actually, the exact same sizing. lol Just worked out that way.. 17x7.5 +48. The Attacks always seemed a bit "small" on the car. Not sure if it was due to the shape of the wagon, or the dish if the wheels, design, etc. But with the RPF's it seems like they'll look better, even though it's the same size.. Not to mention, all cars look better with black wheels. : )
