Default What non-Subaru factory 17" wheels fit WRX?

I'm looking for used 17" wheel options for my '02 WRX. Is there a list somewhere of 5x100 factory wheels with the correct +53-55 offset?

Thanks in advance for any help

You don't have to stay with the stock offset for wheels to fit on your car.

The search button should become your best friend.

I should have said that I did search for a while. So, what search terms would YOU use?

There are BBS 17s from the Spec R1, the 04 STI BBS, the 06-07 WRX wheels, the UK WRX 17s, the Legacy B4 17s, and many other JDM wheels.

EDIT: lol mis-read that title. OP was looking for non-Subaru. Oops!

So a link to an appropriate result from a search which helps answer the question would be (fill in the blank)........
