Default off road tires and wheels for WRX

What is available in tires and rims for off road rally type application. Are there any heavy duty tires that would handle lots of punishment? I would also be interested in any rally suspension set ups that might include higher ground clearence or stiffer springs. Info would be for a wagon, Thanks.

A few places offer rally tyres. Pirelli and Michelin. They are pure rally tyres, Offroad use only. Rallyspec carries Michelin and AVSport carries Pirelli. AVSport carries wheels. I would do a 15inch wheel. I don't know the construction of these tires, but it is noted that racing tyres and street tyres are of not the same construction. Racing tyres, perticulary road racing tyres are lighter and they don't have all that kevlar, etc; because they don't take abuse from potholes, and repeated loading and unloading and other abuses a street tire does.

Canjam auto is selling tires from their Rally team. THey are in Canada, and are the "team" that is the factory backed Subaru team in Canada. They are selling quite a few different tires, including michelin, pirelli (and more that I can't remember) and some custom grooved tires. They are selling them for $35.00 and up a tire, that have been used by the rally cars for a stage or two. You can also buy speedlines from them to mount them on for a decent price. I imagine that they would mount and balance them for free if you bought the whole works from them. I think that they sell new tires as well, but I never asked.
