Default I fit 225/50/16 V710s on my GF, yeah!

Just an FYI post.

I managed to fit 225/50/16 Kumho V710s on my wagon. I have them on stock 16x6.5 WRX wheels. My spring set up is Prodrive P1s with front camber plates and a 10mm spacer in the rear strut. Alignment is -0.5 degrees camber in the rear.
I removed the rear fender rubber and rolled the fender lip by about 3 mm. With this I have about 1mm clearance to the strut spring perch and less than 1mm to the fender lip.

There is really no room to spare. A wider rim or different offset or alignment would surely rub in the rear.

YMMV
