I just purchased XXR wheels 17x8.25 with a 35mm offset. My subaru is a 2009 impreza 2.5i with stock height, i havent lowered it. I was wondering what size tires i should get that would fit my car best.

Question about tire size
Posted 18 August 2013 - 01:08 PM
Welcome to the USMB.
I would suggest trying to keep the overall tire diameter the same. What size tires do you currently have on the car?
You can use this tire calculator to input your old tire size and play around with new tire sizes that are close to the original size.

Are you sure those rims will fit without rubbing the outside fender? I suppose they will if you go pretty narrow and pretty low-profile.
Stock offset is around 53mm (give or take a mm or 2). I think the 17's on impreza's (and many subaru's) are only 7" wide. That means you'll be sticking out a whole bunch.
You might tray over at Nabisco... I mean www.nasioc.com, they are much more geared to Impreza's and will probably have a FAQ on this exact question.
Looks like you might be able to roll with 225-245/40's. Maybe. Do some reading there, might need to roll the fenders.
