Default Winter wheels that work with 2011 Wrx wagon?

I'm helping a friend find a set of winter wheels for his 2011 Wrx wagon. I would really like to find a used set of winter wheels, if not a wheel/tire combo, at-least a used set of wheels.

After searching it looks like the OEM 16 inch wrx wheels will work, what other wheels can I look for? I think OEM would be best as I would know I'm getting a quality wheel. But what size and offset should I be looking for 16+ inch wheels with a +45-+48 offset?

Thanks!

Tom

ive seen some oem 02 wrx wheels on a 2011, the specs on those are 16x6.5 55offset
so assuming that's the limit, anything larger in diameter, wider (to a certain point of course) and more aggressive offset (to a certain point) should work. i personally would look into maybe some 2010 wrx wheels they would look ok and there a pretty good size for winter.

Check The Tire Rack for wheels and fitment. then see if you can find those wheels used.... that's what I'd do.
