Default Wheel sizes and Wheel repair

Anyone know if 16" GTI VR6 wheels will fit a WRX? I think they are sized the same 5 x 100 but I'm not sure of the offset in a 7" configuration. Also anyone know where a bent wheel can be fixed. Its not too bad but is a little bent after hitting a pothole.

Default VW's use a lower offset...

The VW rims use a lower offset and if it is an O.E. wheel that you are looking at, it has the wrong center bore and it uses radius seat lug hardware not tapered seat hardware. There are other 5-100 vehicles out there that can take VW wheels, however the Subaru is not one of them. Proper wheels for Subaru's are not interchangeable for other car makes and nothing else out there is correct for a Subaru...
