I'm not sure which model you have, but I have winter tires mounted on 5 spoke styled 16" Forester steelies. They fit just fine on my Baja. Unless your stock wheel size is bigger than 16", I can't see why they wouldn't fit.

I am running 16 inch black steelies from tirerack on my 06 wrx. They clear the 4 pots barely. I will take a pic for you when I get out of work.
