18x8.5 +44

Fills the guards nicely without poking or looking ridiculous. Here's a pic of my car with Rotas with those specs:

The white betty is an STi... wider guards. You won't be getting a +25 offset in a WRX.

Like JRecardo I run 18 x 8.5 +44 Rota DPT on my car. They sit flush.
Personally I wouldn't go further than +40

That size will not fit without guard work and coilovers.

Here is a wheel setup that would sit 10mm further into the guards then what you are proposing.

18x9 +38 (245/40/18)






Owner's comments:

The widest tire I've seen run on an 08-10 WRX without fender modifications was 255/35/18. However, this was on a WRX running coilovers so the height and dampening were adjusted to accomplish this fitment without rubbing
