Default 1998 2.5 RS Wheels on 2004 WRX

Should the 16 x 7.0 Gold 2.5RS Wheels match up nicely with a 2004 WRX? Want the nice wheels without sacrificing comfort, found a place that can still get Factory 2.5 RS Wheels in the Gold that was only offerred in 1998.

Anybody know for sure? I believe the wheels are +53mm offset which I think should be ok if I go by the FAQ. But wanted to know if any other WRX owners have put these on their cars.

Yeah. I love the 98-99 RS 5-spoke style. Sexy! They'll fit perfectly.

Thanks, I want to get new tires on them before I put them on. So, I wanted to know ahead of time instead of looking stupid at the tire shop b/c a noob didn't know that his wheels won't stay on. =)
