Default Smaller than 17" wheels & 4-pot Calipers?

Is there any possibility of mounting smaller than 17" wheels on the STi?

Supposedly 15" Compomotive rally spec wheels can be manufactured to fit the WRX. For the record, I ordered a set of TH2's manufactured specifically to clear the front calipers of the U.S. WRX and they did NOT fit.

Smaller wheels would be used for snow and gravel. 16" wheels are acceptable for snow, but I haven't seen anything larger than a 15" gravel rally tire. What about shaving the calipers? Rally teams run 15" rally wheels with 4-pot calipers, what is different about their set-up?
