    Can I put 225/40/17 tires on my stock 2012 Wrx wheels?

    I'm going out of town this Thursday when the big snowstorm dumps. I found a deal for a set of winter tires 225/40/17. Will these fit my stock 2012 wrx wheels? I know my stock tires on my wrx wheels are 235/45/17.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    They will fit. I'd probably go for the 45 sidewall if I could (moar meat), but the specs you list will work on your wheel. I always recommend going slightly narrower (as you would be) on snow tires. Wider is not better in snow.
