I would say yes but wait for couple more answers before you order. My plan is to get similar size for my next replacement if possible also. Maybe I will try 225/50/17 if that cant fit then I saw others fit 215/50/17 and looks better then stock.

Out of.boredom I swapped the wheels between my impreza and my outback and my 235/55/17s just barely fit on the impreza. I only drove about 20 feet but I think tires that are an inch smaller shouldn't be a problem. Just remembered that

And in your first pic, is that your Outback with your Impreza wheels installed?

LOL

yup, i actually like those wheels on the outback. and there is no way those 235/55/17 tires would fit the suspension on a stock '12 impreza. if i swapped on new forester or XV struts, theyd fit. i drove the impreza about 20 ft that day

Funny that you say that about those Impreza sport wheels, they are actually older Outback wheels painted a different color... I noticed this on the oem wheel thread.

Do you guys think a 215/55 tire would be ok on the stock 17's? I was planning on getting 215/50 tires but would prefer a slightly taller tire if possible.

Actually, now that I think of it, maybe a 225/50 tire wouldn't be bad. Tire height should be in between a 215/50 and a 215/55. Right?

215/55 would add over an inch in height and under a half inch in width with +3 mph @60 mph.

215/50 would add under a half inch height and width with +1 mph @60 mph.

225/50 would add under an inch height and width with +2 mph @60 mph.

I don't see any of them adding enough size to be a problem, maybe your first choice.

I'm planning on going the same route whenever I replace my tires. 215/55 16's if I stick with my stock wheels, 225/50 17's if I upgrade to new wheels.

Diameters
Stock= 25.07"
215/50= 25.46"
215/55= 26.31"
22/50= 25.86"

I to want to run 225/50's as well on a 13' 5dr but I can't find anyone that has. I have RA mudflaps and it's a sport so there is less clearance behind the front tires.

Anyone?

They should fit. There was an earlier model Impreza with XV rims and tires on. The XV tires measure out to be 225/55/17 which is about 26.8 inches in diamter. 225/60/16 also measures out to be 26.8 inches.

not surprising, the 235/55/17s almost fit, they're 27.2" in overall diameter
