Default 03 wrx 215 or 225

So im having trouble finding conformation on rubbing with the set up i have and thinking if i should switch. Currently im running 225/45/17 on a 17x7 pretty sure 45 offset which is what came on the car when i bought it. The inner fender well on the front driver side is shredded, but i never heard and scrapping/rubbing what so ever. I have since put coilovers in thr front, but have yet to install the rears. It already had a drop suspension when i bought it, pretty sure eibach pros with the adjustable kyb in the rear, but stock struts in the front.

Im wondering if i should stick with the 225, or if i should go with 215. I have read that the 225s rub and that they dont. I couldnt find any confirmation on the offset that i have. Most of what im seeing with the 225s is it should be 48-53

This all depends on what brand / style wheel you are running.
Each wheel of the same size, ie: 17x7, can have different offsets.

If you are really running a +45mm offset on a 2003 WRX, you should have enough room to run the 225x45x17 tires.

You have to look at the inside of the wheel itself. The offset will be molded into the wheel.
What I mean by that is the backside of the wheel, NOT the area between the tire and the wheel.

If 225s rub, you're way to damn low.

Lol i know what the inside/backside of the wheel is, i jus cant see it w the wheels turned, and havent had time, the weather, or both at the same time to get the car in the air n take the wheel off. My buddy i got the car from sent me a pic of the receipt from direct tire. The way its written out is weird, but im pretty sure its a 45 offset. I dont see any other numbers of the receipt that could be the offset.

Ya i was pretty sure it wasnt rubbing, figured i would have heard it, just dont know how else the inner fender got shredded, and i was concerned with the rear when i get around to putting the coilovers in.
