Default Dispell the myth. RS and WRX wheels are the same for the 05 but....

I'm hearing conflicting reports of what rims I'll rub with.

Now I'm stock right now. 16x6.5 on my '05 RS Wagon and I'm assuming that the WRX Wagon is a 16x6.5 with the same suspension setup (maybe a little better)

but what I'm mainly concerned about is rubbing.

Now I've been told with a 225/45/17x7.5 setup I will rub.

But I somehow magically won't rub with a 215/45/17x75 setup.

Anyone care to ease my brain a little bit.

BTW the wheels I'm looking at are the Rota Torque 17x7.5 with a +48 offset on stock '05 RS Wagon suspension.

thanks guys.
