Default Which wheels/tires for 05 STI Brake/Hub/Coilover Swap into 99 Legacy GT

I recently ordered a full 05 STI 6 speed swap that included r180, axles and hubs. I ordered STI calipers as well and plan to swap it all into my 99 Legacy GT with the addition of 05 STI coilovers in some form or another.

What is the widest 5 x 114 wheel 17" or 18" diameter (width/offset) and tire (tread/section width) that I could fit after an inner fender roll?

I don't have the axles or hubs, but went with 7.5 width, and it barely clears, with a fender roll. Previous to the fender roll I was rubbing.

Do some searching to see what the wrx wagon folks are running. They have roughly the same limitation in width as we do with our generation Legacy.
