Default 225/50/16 slicks on stock wrx wheels?

has anybody had any trouble getting 225/50/16 sized slicks on their stock wheels?

i'm interested in buying a set of hoosier A3S04 tires in this size to put on my stock wheels for autox purposes.

anyone else on here running those tires? any tips in heat cycling them?

I've seen many people in the Washington DC region autox circut with 225-50 r16 hoosiers. I am currently in STX (street tires for me), but the hoosiers seem to work on sedans and wagons. Can't help with the heat cycling question
