Default 225 Tires on Euro or Japanese GC8's?

Do 225's fit on Japanese or European GC8's. I thought they had the same fender and hence the same restrictions. What about the P1?

I wonder what the deal with that is as well. If you look through Hyper Revs, there are a lot of GC8s with 225s

I have a GC* STI JDM spec and no way will 225s fit in there.

Most japanese tuners tend to massage the fenders a bit to clear wider rims and tires

Not sure what you mean Red Rocket - going through the GC8 Hyper Rev books we have here at the shop, not one car uses 225's on a 17..all are 215/45 or 215/40 17.....
