Question my winter setup....need your input.

So my WRX is lowered on Tein HTech springs (1.8F and 1.0R or about)

I've decided to go with 16x7.0 slipstreams with a 48 offset and 205/55/16 for the tires. Can I have your opinion on if:

1. This will fit fine
2. You think I will have any issues with rubbing


Thanks in advance,

Manny

1. tire in size 225/50 will match your stock wheel/tire diameter a bit better to match speedo and odo. 225/55 is too big diameter-wise, unless thats what youre going for.

2. you shouldnt rub if you have a sedan.

If it's not a wagon, a 225/50 or even a 225/40 should work.

It's a sedan. So I take it the 205/55 would work fine then?
