but seriously, rubbing depends on offset. i have 17 x 7.5 on my 03 wagon with 225-45-17 tires and prodrive springs, no rubbing. but thats cuz i have wheels with 53 offset. just be sure the wheel is greater than 48 offset to have no rubbing. with 48 some rub some dont. thats with 225 tires. with 215 tires and 48 you shouldnt rub.

It will depend on offset, tires, suspension, alignment, etc.. I had no rubbing with 215/45 17s on 17x7.5" +48 wheels with the stock suspension and with STi takeoffs.

215s are the safe way to go.
YinUCSD, what rims do you have?

I have 17x7.5 SDR's on my 04 WRX wag with 225/45/17 and no rubbing whatsovever... of course I am on stock suspension... I may put springs on later but I'll probably have to sell the rims and put the stockers back on to afford it
