Default Widest tire that will fit inside GD wheel well


I want to add wider tires to my 05 STi for more grip in a practical sense.

In order to fit those lower offset ("hella-flush") wheels inside the fenders, most guys likely need to run a tire width that is narrower than the wheel width. This results in slanted sidewalls. Basically, the full potential of the wheel width is not realized.

My question is, what is the widest tire (and ultimately, widest wheel) that will fit inside of the a GD wheel well without inboard/outboard rubbing issues, have sidewalls that are vertical and not slanted, and still be practical?
