I think going the 225 will rub. I have 215/45/17 on my 01 and it gets close. I have the same tires you are trying to use on a set of wrx rims and I have not tried to put them on because I am pretty sure they will rub.

hmm now that search is back on, it seems totally up in the air with the GC8. one guy says stock tires and stock susp with 225 will rub no matter what, and then i have a gc8 buddy with sti bbs wheels and 225-45-17 T1-S that will never rub! insane! ive only ridden in a GC8 so i have no clue as far as body pieces and suspension setup between model years, body styles, etc.
