    Hi Dave I was running set of sti 8 rims when i got them with 225/45/17 they would not fit the classis ie rub rear struts so went down to 215/45/17s and was a bit better. they are also an 8j alloy. Classic's seem to like a 7.5j alloys. scoobaru mad (Chris) is running 215/40/18s on his standard wrx wagon struts and they rub with just one person in the back :shock: . So I would say go with the same as Martin and go with 215/35/18s and you should be fine and will look the dogs :wink:
