Default What's the widest tire that i can use on my Subie?

My car is lowered with Stock shock and Tein either S Tech, or H Tech, (i didn't put them on, so i don't know), So if that was the case, what's the widest tire i can put on, can 225 clear it? BTW, i am driving a 02 WRX sedan

Rolling your fenders a bit you could fit 245s depending on the wheels you have. With stiffer/higher springs you could do 275s or more.

I have the stock OEM 16'' wheel, i am just not sure if the spring is stiff enough to run the 225 tires. The tirerack ppl said it might have a problem to clear it if u lowered the car. so i am still not sure.

You will fit plenty. 225 is not wide at all. On a sedan you will have absolutely no issues.

More and more every day I find the tirerack to be full of crap.
