-Tire Size- 235/45/17 General Exclaim UHP
-Rota Tarmac 2 17x7.5
-+48
-None at rest, possibly slight rubbing when really pushing the car (not much room to the rear strut bodies, but enough that a 245 of this tire would probably still barely clear)
-Suspension -entirely stock

Tire brand and size: Yokohama A032 245/40/17
Rim width and height: Rota Torque 17"x8"
Rim offset: +48mm
Any rubbing: none audibly noticeable
Suspension: 04 USDM STi struts/ JDM Pink springs / Group N Top hats
Using any spacers: no

Test fit these today at a buddy's place. Went for a drive and put them through the paces around some hard corners and a few bumps. No rubbing sounds whatsover. I would estimate there's 1 3/4 inches of space between the tire and the strut tower, can barely get two fingers back there. Might be sketchy getting 255's to fit.

Input needed: I have an '07 XT Sport, and wanted to run an 18x7.5 wheel with stock struts and Swift springs.
Offset and tire size recommendations, please?
Thanks.

Edit: Forget it, I think I've figured out what I need.
