I run 16x7 with 225/50/16 and there's a good .75" between the strut and tire in the rear and a little more in the front. fender clearance is fine with stock WRX suspension

How tall of of tire are you running? I am running 235/45 17's and had a little bit of rubbing on the fender on big bumps, but i rolled the lips and now its little to none on the rubbing.

Only the rear rubs not the front, no rubs in turning either. So if you want to be safe roll the lips
