Would those rims still work if brakes are upgraded in the future?
There's no OEM steel wheel that I know of that fits over the STI Brembos. There is a steel SPARE that fits.

Also, with that offset and 215/55/r16 tires is the scrub radius affected? I don't know how to calculate such things. Thanks.
Any time you move the offset from stock, the scrub radius is affected, but +42 isn't enough of a different to worry about.
