    tire size swap on 2015 WRX limited

    I have a set of 4 Bridgestone Blizzak 225/60/17 off of a 2014 Forester. A great winter tire, but can I successfully use them on my 2015 WRX, which has 235/45/17? Any issues? Thanx

    May have issues with a higher sidewall profile.

    I have learned from an experienced tire retailer that the 225/60 might rub the wheel well and even if it did not it would change handling,, and wasn't sure about effect on abs, etc. Ill keep on researching.Thanx

    Handling will be way different but I'm not sure if it would have issues with abs or vehicle speed as one or all of those are tied in with wheel diameter
