Default Lifting a 2018 WRX. What size tires for my stock rims?

I'm getting a 2" lift installed next week on my 2018 WRX. My original plan was to get the new Falken Wildpeak A/T tires in a 225-55-17 installed on my stock rims, but it now looks like those aren't available yet, so, I need to explore plan B and the clock is ticking...

I'm now looking at the Yokohama Geolandar, which seems to be pretty common on the lifted WRX's. If I go with the 225-60-17 I'm concerned I'm going to rubbing issues & I'm not super excited about cutting / trimming. Has anyone used this size on stock rims with a 2" lift?

My other option is 215-60-17. I see people are putting this on the Method 502 8" rim. It seems narrow for an 8" rim though! Also, I'm concerned it may look goofy with the stock wheels 55mm offset. If I go this route I'm thinking of using 10mm wheel spacers. Any thoughts on this combo? I'd to switch out the stock rims for the Methods but I was hoping to avoid dropping the $$$ for the wheels right now.

Any insight and/or personal experience with these options is appreciated!
