Default 17x7 42mm offset

i have a set of wheels with no tires on them. i know they will bolt on but i don't want to get tires for them if they will rub. i have an 04 wrx sedan. i know they are nor the "Right" wheels for the car but they are free. they are MSR style 113 17x7 with a 42 mm offset.
thanks
steve

Sell them on eBay, then buy proper wheels. There's more to it than just tires rubbing. Wrong offset affects steering geometry and feel, torque steer, and wheel bearing life.
