Wanted to talk to someone who has this set up and if they have rubbing issues. I have a 02 WRX sedan. I am currently running these tires on stock suspension but would like to put on the eibach pro kit, and I don't want to roll the fenders. If this does not work any suggestions for tire size that will not rub.

Thanx,

SubiePilot

well I'm running 245/40/17 SO3s on 17x8.5 +50 wheels and -1.5 rear camber. I also have pink springs and the only time I exprience rubbing is with a full load going over speed bumps.

It's all going to depend on your tire brand and mainly your wheel specs (i.e. width, offset) but it's doable with a correct setup.

That's going to be close. Even though you have a half inch narrower wheel, which give you about a 1/4 inch more clearence over my wheels, your tires are just as wide if not wider.
