    2009 WRX Stock wheel and tire size???

    I keep finding conflicting information as to what the stock Rim and Tire combination for the 2009 WRX is. I get one wheel and tire size from the brochure, one from tirerack.com and another from another website. To my knowledge the stock specs for the wheels and tires are:
    Wheels:
    17x7 Diameter and Width, 5x114.3 Bolt Pattern, 40 Offset
    Tires:
    Dunlop SP Sport 245-45R17 (Ive also seen 225-50R17)??????

    Can anyone confirm any of this....I could wait till my car is delivered on July 6th but Im anxious.

    I installed 225/45/17 Kuhmo ASX a couple of weeks ago on the 08 stock wheels. The installer said it was a tight fit on the rims but the car rides so much better than those RE92's. I was hoping to go to new wheels and tires but found a bubble on the sidewall of one of the stock tires.

    I fit the same tires on my 09 rims which are the same size without problem. They look wider than a 225 though
