Ended up deciding to go with a set of Goodyear Eagle Sport A/S 245/50R18's through Discount Tire's online eBay sale. Semi-limited options in that size, but wanted to keep the diameter as close to OE spec as possible.

And the end result on the car. Very happy with how it turned out.

Trying to find out and having a tough time finding it:

'06 XT on STI suspension.

Would some Rota Grids 17x9 with 255/40-17 fit? Offset is +42.

I have a good deal on a set and want to know if i should take it or not.

Same wheel setup, but new suspension setup! This is the most recent low, but currently getting it to air out even more.

Wheel/tire setup:
STR 514 17x9 +20
25mm ISC wheel spacers (making it a -5 offset)
BFG Sport Comp 2 255/40s

Suspension setup:
Airlift 3P kit w/ 02-07 WRX struts

Looks great! I've seen all your recent posts on IG, but a good quality photo really does it justice. Keep it up.

p.s. Your car is a rocket ship.

Hey thank you! I appreciate that. And to think that photo was shot with my Galaxy S7 Edge haha. I'll be doing a legit shoot w/ my Nikon soon. Just want to finish dialing in the air.

They look nice :) just a question I see your on 245/45/18. This setup would surely make the speedo read either higher or lower is that correct ? I'm from Australia and the consensus is try to stick as close as possible speedo wise. seen one person here do 235/50/18 on the stock time which made speedo read 5kph less

Debating here and really struggling.. Trying to see if I can (or should) mount 245/40/18 on 18x7.5 +48 rim. Car will be lowered on stock struts with Swift Springs. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Current: 08 FSXT WRB, 00 Acura NSX

Given the 7.5" wheel width, I'd go with a 235 max. If you look at specs on tire rack, they'll give you the recommended rim width range for each specific tire and size.
