Default HELP! What is narrowest wheel/tire combo for WRX w/Rotora?

Looking to put on as narrow as possible tires for autoX (want to find as narrow as 125 if possible). I have 13" rotora's in the front which the wheels need to clear... Would love to find a narrow allow 17 or 18.
Any help? Maybe high performance cars donut wheel and tire combos that have same lug and offset?
Ideas? ... want to get slippery

Probably the narrowest wheel that will clear big brakes will be the spare from the 2004 STi. It's a steelie 17" wheel with a big curve in it to clear Brembos. I don't know whether it will fit over those Rotoras or not. I think they come with a 135/70/17 tire.
