Default 2001 RS wheel on a WRX Wagon?

I have a question and couldn't find the answer with a search.

Will the stock 2001 RS wheel fit on the wagon without any rubbing issues? This is an example of the wheel i'm talking about:



Thanks!

They will fit fine, and they will clear the Subie 4-pot front brakes.
They are 16x7 and the WRX's are 16x6.5 stock...

I use a set of 2000/2001 RS wheels on my 2004 WRX wagon. I have used both the Yoko ES100 (205/55/16) and Hankook snows...same size.

No rubbing with either tire...ever.

Somebody might chime in on the possible use of a 225/50....that's the size I'd use if it would fit.....

thanks for the input guys! since it is a wider wheel i would probably end up going with a 225 tire just because i could

I have those wheels on my 2004 wagon. They look very cool.

I am running a 225/50/16 now.

I think I will switch to a stock size tire next time though. These tires are costing me 3 mpg!
