I'd say get the lighter wheels to take extra advantage of all those new mods. use the stocks for snow.

Also, I got the Subaru interior light kit. We should put it in together. If u like it u can get one too.

this is what i suggest:

1) Sell those stock wheels. they are well liked and always have lots of bites.
2) Buy 08-10 stock WRX wheels for CHEAP and make them beater/winter wheels. you really dont need the 8" 11+ wheels for snow. Theres a member selling them locally for cheap.
3) Difference in money you made from 1 & 2, along with your money saved up, buy nice summer wheels + tires.

I got mud flaps, and money for a basket also. I'm getting the Yakima Load Warrior. Forum member BrianB makes attachments to mount the Load Warrior with out using cross bars. Thread is called Operation low profile, or something it may not be on NASIOC I think the build is on 3gwrx forum... I'm on my phone so I can't link it.

I already have the mudflaps love em. And I think I'll end up getting the load warrior as well. I was looking at the Thule, but it's just so heavy!!!

Here is the link to the thread I refrenced. I think the stance you get from using his mounts is worth the extra lbs. But on quiuck refrence, the Thule MOAB is the same deminsions and 45lbs vs the Yakima Load Warrior's 25lbs.
The MOAB is $100 more for the basket alone, so it may be more sturdy or support more of a load, but that is probably something I will never max out with 2 bikes, or 4 snowboards.

Apart from the social aspect of the meeting, do you ever get people trying to sell parts of their Subarus? Sadly my beloved 1997 Impreza Outback Sport is off to car heaven and even though it is salvaged after the car was hit when it was parked on the street and I was nowhere near it, it has parts that could be useful to someone looking for spares.
