Have a Nice Day? quick please read

Im ordering some te37 for my subaru wrx wagon wr blue. The car will be here in a month and the rims take about a month to get. What is the maximum size i can get on the front wheels and maximum size for the rear wheels?I already know about the 53mm offset. Does i am trading in my legacy gt limited dont really know a lot except for what i have been reading here about AWD cars. Will my WRX wagon handle better if i put wider rims and tires on the back (as wide as i can) and the widest on the front tires and rims. Wider tires would mean wider stance, wider stance and more tire on the road better grip and handling correct. I understand big heavy wide tires you lose horsepower but horsepower is not everything to me. So correct me if i am wrong just looking for some more info before ordering.

thanks in advance, my garage is happy about its new friend that will be in it in a month, he told me to tell you guys that. PS he told me to tell you as well dont park your WRX outside.

You need all 4 to be the same size, and I can only guess that 17x7.5 is the biggest you can go unless you are willing to take the chance and get larger and risk having to roll the fenders or get a little rubbing.

Where did you order you volk te37s? I am looking for some gunmetal te37 in 17x7.5. I remember reading a post that the +48 offset will fit the WRX. You can't go wrong with the te37 they are very light.

it cost a lot more but you can special order some te37 with up to a 53 mm offset. They are pretty expensive though. You pay for the special order. Robocar is petty cheap i heard. But i get them through a local shop because a good friend of his works at mackin and we get a good price,
