Default 2011 WRX wheels on a 2011 OBS/2.5i?

I've come up on a good deal on a set of 2011 WRX tires/wheels (235/35-17) on a set of 17x8.5(+53 offset?) 2011 WRX wheels. Will they be able to clear in my 2011 outback sport on stock suspension? Has anyone tried this? I intend to run 225/45-17's on the rims long term if this would help fitment.

Should fit no problem. The only differences in the OBS/2.5i vs. WRX suspension in they have different struts and prings (WRX is stiffer). The OBS and 2.5i are identical.

Just a side note - if they are the OEM WRX tires, lots of people didn't care for them.

Going on information I learned from the local subie shop, I went ahead with the deal. The wheels came with stock Dunlop Sport 01's but mostly I am in love with the rims, but with winter coming, I'm looking to put Nokian WR G2's on the WRX wheels. Unless anyone reccomends me not going with these tires for year round use?

If anyone is interested I'm considering selling my stock 2011 wrx wheels and tires with less than 50 miles( drive back from dealer). Shoot me an offer.

Nope. STI wheels are 5X114.3. WRX, OBS and 2.5i are all 5X100.
