I would think you would need a big hammer to modify the fender wells to fit 9" wheels (especially in the rear).

If you have coilovers (more clearance on the strut side), rolled fenders, and the perfect offset (+50?). You might be able to do it, but 8.5 is normally the limit.

Yeah the only Subaru that fits a wheel that wide, that I've seen, was the Cusco widebody track car.....

even if you got 17x9, any tire that would fit into your wheel wells would fit fine on a 17x8.5. anything larger that would require 9 inches in rim width would most likely not fit into your wheel wells without getting a widebody kit.
