Default Are there OEM 17x7.5's??

My vehicle is a 2002 WRX sedan. Currently am running 17x7.5 Rota Tarmac 2's. I just last night I ordered installed the new Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All-seasons ....well to my dismay they found that one of my wheels is cracked on the inside lip and has a VERY small leak. Nonetheless, the integrity of the wheel has been compromised and am having a hard time sourcing a local used Tarmac 2 (or even a full set). So I'm in the market for some used wheels. I did a search but am having a hard time finding the info I need and I know there are a few wheel guru's in here )). I'm under the impression that the Forester XT is 17x7. But I'm running 225 tires. Are there any OEM Subaru wheels that would be 17x7.5 so that I can just transfer my new tires over? Sorry for the story and thanks for any info.

That's the only OEM 17x7.5 wheel that came installed on any USDM vehicle. There are OEM Subaru wheels in Japan that are 17x7.5, but they're spendy as hell.

FWIW, I'm currently selling a set of gold 04 STI BBS.

Disregard....used Google and found a thread on here listing all OEM wheel sizes.....seems the only OEM Subaru wheels that would work is the 04 STI wheels...I knew they'd fit but was looking for maybe another alternative that isn't done so frequently...there are quite a few 17x7's but not 7.5 ://..unless anyone has a used set of cheap wheels i can refinish sitting in they're closet they want to get off their hands? ))...or any other ideas...like if maybe my 225/45's would be ok on a 7 inch wheel?

Where are you located and how much...I'm sort of looking for a set that could use some freshening up since I can take my time while I still have a car I can drive at the same time

There's absolutely nothing wrong with putting 225s on a 17x7" wheel or a 17x8" wheel. Don't unnecessarily limit your choices.
