If you like the look of the sti BBS and wanna run stretch, check out rotas. Not comparing the two (eyes flame suit nearby) just saying they have several similar wheel designs with wider sizes. As for rim damage due to stretch.. unlikely unless you smash around on them. I ran 215's.on a 9.5 (that's stupid stretch ) around for about a year on some awfully paved roads with no damage whatsoever. Maybe I got lucky. What IS more likely to happen are bead issues, tire wear, and ****ty handling.
