Default Odd Request - 2015 WRX Near Portland

Greetings. I have a 2015 WRX CWP on order (est. arrival early Jan), and just received the winter wheels I'll be installing. They are 17" steelies, and I'm not sure that they will clear the brakes. Is there anyone near the Portland/Beaverton area that would be willing to meet up so I can check the clearance? I'll buy you a coffee, beer, sandwich, etc... Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

17" steelies should clear no problem unless they have retarded offset. Are they subaru steelies?

Thanks for the reply. They aren't Subaru steelies, they are
these onesthese ones
.

I checked the wheel and tire width (relative the to hub face) and compared it to other wheel/tire combos people have been running. These rims, along with the 205/50/17 winter tires I'll mount to them, stick out from the hub about 0.25" further than stock, but stick out much less than other combos people have been running (with stock fenders and ride height).

I'm mostly concerned with the wheels fitting over the brakes, since that's the one thing I can't really measure. Thanks.
