Default 235 45r17 bridgestone blizzak LM-22 on a WRX wagon

Hi. I might be able to get a deal on these, and I'm wondering if they will fit on my wagon: 235 45r17 bridgestone blizzak LM-22. Thanks.

225/45-17 seems to be a tight fit on a wagon at best. With the additional width (and diameter) of a 235/45-17, I would guess that your chances of fitting it without rubbing are slim.

Depends on the offset of the wheel also. i had the same problem as above witha wheel witha 40 mm offset. hope that helps. other than that the clearance seemed fine

if you run a 7.5" wheel w/ a 48mm offset... you'll be rubbing for sure....

if you are going to get a good deal on those tires... it might be an option for you to do some fender modification but it might still be too big.

good luck.
