Tire Size

Hey all, i got a bit of a stupid question, i tried searching and found nothing.

Question: what size of tires come factory on the MY98 WRX STi V4 (which i assmue is same as v3 and v5)

i found nothing in these searches and google is giving me everything from 15x6 up to 17x7.... once again sorry for stupid question but my car never came with the original rims and im going to get some steel rims for winter in a month and want to go with as small a rim as i can, im just not sure a 15" rim will fit over the STi brakes.

Re: Tire Size

My Impreza has 205/55/16 Hankook tires. They have lots of grip, and handling is good also. Bought these tires because the sales rep of 4wheelonline gave me a nice price.
