Bought my first Subaru last week, and I'm really enjoying it! I'm finding myself looking for curvy lines on the map from point A to point B for the first time in many years.

I'm already thinking about a tires and wheels upgrade. It's a 2013 Impreza sport premium wagon, with OEM 17x7 wheels and 205/50R17 tires. Looking at 17x8 wheels with +45 offset. A 225/45R17 tire is slightly smaller in diameter, and lowers the effective final gear ratio and spins the speedometer/odometer just a bit faster. If I go to a 235/45R17, it would be a slightly larger diameter than OEM. Suggestion?

The other consideration is fitment. It looks like the 225's will have plenty of clearance.(?) Am I pushing it with 235's, with everything else being stock?
