Question Can you fit 255/40/17 on 05 STi?

I'm picking up my 05 STi in a week or so and I was wondering if anyone knows if its possible to fit 255/40/17 (8.5 wide wheel) tires on it without rubbing. I know that 04 Sti can fit 245s but it rubs in the rear on track etc. The 05 Sti has redesigned rear fenders which hopefully allows for some wider tires. So did anyone put any wide tires on 05 Yet. Any info would be appriciated.

I don't think the rear is that much wider... but with some aditional neg camber I'm sure you can fit them.
