Default Fitment with Spacer Q

I hate to ask a "would these wheels fit" but I read the offset info and really don't understand it, so would these wheels with a 20mm "5x100 to 5x114.3" conversion spacer fit an 04 wrx?

Short answer...NO.

1.) You REALLY don't want to use any sort of "conversion spacer". Just a bad idea. One more thing to go wrong in a very critical area.
2.) Even if you did use the conversion spacer you'd end up with +25mm offset, which is WAY TOO low. You'd rub like crazy, not to mention the ill effects it'd have on handling.
3.) There are plenty of choices for 5x100 wheels that will actually fit your car. Look at the Vendor forums and search.
