Default Concave Wheels = Aggressive Fitment?

Thread title is a bit misleading, I apologize. What I wanted to ask about is, I love that aggressive concave look on a rim (such as Rota Torque 18x9.5), but I notice that its always paired with a very aggressive offset, requiring coilovers and/or rolling the fenders. Is there a rim out there that I can fit on my 04 WRX, with that aggressive concave look, and a possible semi-aggressive fitment, but not aggressive enough that I need additional modifications to make the wheels fit?

EDIT:

By the way, I am running the stock suspension on Tein H-Techs.

I dont know what the leeching rules are here at NASIOC so I will link this picture from google image search:

I want something like this:

without having to spend thousands on additional suspension modifications to make them fit.

i hope you're willing to roll and possibly pull your rear fenders. anything wider than 225 on that low of an offset and you're going to rub.

the rota dpt has a moderate offset and has a decent amount of concave.

You bumped a 3 year old thread for a useless question.

I have 5zigen GN+ 17x9 with +44 offset, they came off of a 06 wrx....fit them stock perfectly (i have a 99 2.5rs)

I do NOT suggest an 18, you will notice your car is slower and sloppy in the turns, especially with stock shocks.

trust me...17x9 is as far as you want to go. and i did this for the track.
