if brembos then what i said about the rears applies, as well as the statement that u will need both front/rear rotors as well.

if it were just standard subaru 4-pot fronts (ie. sti non-brembo), u can get away with keeping your stock front rotors.

Your best bet would be to get STI02-04 rims, they will have the correct offset to suit the brembro brakes. Most 17" and 18" will not clear the brembro brakes. I speak from experience.
