Exclamation aggressive widebody project. what rims/rubber? PLEASE HELP

I am working on a very aggressive custom widebody kit for my 2005 subaru wrx. The fender flares sit out a whole 2 inches wider than stock so I need 11-12" wide rims with a massive offset and am thinkin about 315mm or more for the rubber and need imput on what is best for that as-well. Please help me out on this i dont know where else to turn. My favorite rims are the volk/rays TE37's but i have not been able to find the size I would need anywhere. I have never payed much attention to wheels in the past. All my money, time and research has gone to the engine/driveline. Please include pictures of the wheels with specs and price if you know what i would need and are willing to take the time to help me out.

The widebody is really starting to come along and i will have pics up of it asap. I take this project very seriously and am thankful for every bit i can learn from you guy's. Thank you very much for your time!

ccw's. You might be able to find some 10's if you have 5x114 hubs made for other cars, but you'd be looking at a near 0 offset. Are you looking to be able to turn the wheel lock to lock? if so, you'll need custom tubs (which you likely already have). I rub a bit with 285's.
