That looks awesome. The design of the wheels really go well with the car.

Haha, thanks. I always hate when people post pics from 100ft away and you can't see anything and/or when they don't post the specs.

I think they will. The guy who posted above you appears to be on stock suspension. I didn't have to do any adjustments but I'm on coils.

To echo what Mike said; we recommend either 245/40/17, or 235/40-17s as a direct fitment on a 100% stock car.

Now, depending on model of tire, sometimes you can squeeze 255s on stock... But the easiest fix is just some camber adjustable bolts and you can now clear 255s (plus much more enhance grip and feedback as stock alignment on the FRS & BRZ is very under optimize, even stock suspension).
We selected an offset that allows for a huge range of tires with really flexible fitment.

Here you can see 255s squared. There is 2.7 degrees of camber in the front, and 1.7 in the rear since this car goes to the track regularly as well as regular street driving.
[The rear tire has tire dressing applied, the front does not.]
