Falken Azenis 615's

So I am planning on buying the azenis for the svt. I want to step to a 225/45 instead of the 215/45. I;ve searched the forums and read what people have had to say. I've been reading the azenis run a bit wider. Is it worth stepping up in size? I have the pro kit lowering springs with adjustable camber plates. Any advice or info would be appreciated.

^^^He's talking 17s not 18s.
Your going to have to pull those tires in pretty far with the camber plates to prevent rubbing.
I'm taking a wild guess, but I'll bet with the Pro springs (on stock SVT wheels),
you're going to need between -1.5° to -2° to keep from rubbing.
Here's mine on stock springs, and no camber plates. (-0.9° to -1° from factory).

^^^Scroll through the thread a bit to see the "installed" pics.

If you've got aftermarket wheels with a lower offset than the stock 49mm, nix the 225 idea.

Thanks WD40, I appreciate all the info. I think I'm going to go with the 215's. I would love to have that wider stance but the potential rubbing issues aren't worth it. Still very curious though, is the handling any better? I do have the factory 5 spokes.
