OMGHi2U What size rubber for STi JDM v 7 rims?

Just a quick question...........

I know the v7 rims are 17x7.5 + 53mm, but have seen most people run 215/45/17 tires on these. How about 225/45/17???

Hope I got those numbers right

On a 7.5" wide rim, most people run 225/45/17. On a 7" wide rim, people run 215's. Run the 225/45/17's.

You might have seen people that have the STi wagon wheels that are 17x7? I have never seen anyone running 215's on the sedan ones. Those STi's come with 225-45-17 tires stock, and that's what I'm running...
