Default want to know if subaru 4 pots fit under stock rims

hi i'm just curious as to what brake kits fit under the stock rims ..
as 'im looking to upgrade my brakes i will have 17" rims for the summer but it seems liek a waste of money to swap tires every summer/winter or to get another set of 17" rims also =/
thanks for the help in advance!
Dennis

I was in the same boat. However, I found nothing wrong driving with my 17'' with snow tires mounted on them. These pics show the 4 pots and the AEM BBK.

4 pots will fit under the 16x6.5 wrx wheels if you use a 3 mm spacer.

I like the Sport Edition Fox 5s...look like the stockers, but they're 16x7, and pretty cheap, too. I use 'em for snow wheels.
