2. I'm thinking about going up to a bigger tire size. Would a 225/50/16 tire work on a stock '03 WRX rim? It's for a wagon with a stock suspension/ride height.
I wouldnt do that....that size is squishy on a 6.5" wheel...especially in an AS tire
205/55 is fine

3. Here's some of the tires that I was looking at:

Hankook V4ES - like it alot, looks like a good tire - $105 JUNK
HP259 - its a generic NTB tire, but it's made by yokohama and its cheap - $80 MUCH worse junk

Potenza RE960AS Pole Position - expensive (to me) at 135, but looked good GREAT AS tire

Potenza RE760 Sport - $115 GREAT TIRE ding-ding-ding

Fierce UHP - Goodyear generic, made by Kelly. Looks like it would have zero snow traction (even with awd, lol), but its $96... eh. more junk

Bridgestone G019 Grid - not exactly a HP tire, but its still v-rated and has a 50k mi warranty. $95 meh

I'm going to be putting these on in my auto tech class at a community college I attend here in the KC area on monday (woohoo!) so any advice would be way appreciated.



other than the above 2....keep looking
