I came across a set of Yokohama Advan Tires, the ones that the Evo comes with. One problem though, they are one size too big 235 instead of 225. Does any one know if the Advan 235 tires will fit on Sti BBS Rims(225), with out any problems. I am getting the whole set of tires for 100$ with 80% tread left.

They will fit just fine if you have a Sedan.

If you have a wagon, then no go.
Yep. a 235 will fit on either the 7.5 or 8 inch bbs sti wheels. Although it will definitely fit better on the 8". What is the sidewall profile though? A 45 profile would be best but you can probably get away with a 40.

does this mean that 235/40's on an 18x8 +48 will not work on a bugeye wagon?

the EVO tires are 235/45/17- so a little taller than stock (whereas the 235/40/17 is a little shorter)- 8" rim is better, 7.5" will do in a pinch

235's on wagon will almost certainly require fender rolling- it's not a big deal and you can rent the tool for pretty cheap
