    Stick with 8" IMO. A wider wheel isn't necessarily better at all. The scrub radius on these cars is not conducive to wide wheels.

    Mine is 17x9 ET45 235/45 17 and they don't rub 2004 wrx.. Mine is decently low the rear tires basically tuck at the top.. But I didn't need to roll or pull the fenders.. With 245 I probably would though
