Default 225/45/17 fit on lowered wrx?

Question: will 225/45/17 on a 17x7.5 48 offset wheel fit on my wrx? Lowered on eibach prokits. lowered 1.3in up front and 1in in the rear. Will i get any rubbing issues? Or should i just get 215/45/17?

I've tried searching but I got mixed answers. Some have no issues while others have rubbing issues in the rear. Thanks in advance.

I have 225-45-17 Kumho MX's on my WRX sedan with Eibach prokit springs and I haven't had a problem. From what I have heard, the MX's are among the wider 225-45-17 tires.

If you have a wagon, you may have more of a tire clearance issue.

225/45 17 is the size you want for the wrx. Make sure you get the correct offset and you won't have any problems.
