Unfortunately, I don't think you're likely to find many, if any at all. Part of the problem is that the WRX has a 5X100 PCD that is used on smaller Japanese / German vehicles. I don't know of any manufacturers that make 9" wide 5X100 wheels. I know many people would be running these if there was such a thing. The normal widest recommended Subaru fitment is 18X8.5. I'll surely be paying attention to this thread!!!

Volk makes a CE28 in 17x9 5x100 ($$$$$)
Enkie makes the Tarmac in 17x9 5x100 ($$ + $ to get them across the pond)
Racing Hart has a 17 or 18x9 5x100 ($$$$$)

^^^ All these will fit the brembos

Axis has a 18x9.5 in 5x100 ($ unknown, brembo unknown)

Kodiak, CCW, etc will make you what ever you want ($$$$)

We are still looking into how to convert an R160 type car to the 05+ bolt pattern and bearings...

Shameless plug:

04 STi owners can run our kits to convert to 05+:

I will be mounting up the super sexy Fn01R-C in the 17x10 varieta (Made for the rear of a supra, sick lip and spokes, ET35, 5x114.3) to my 04 STi later tonight. These look much different than the regular FN01R-Cs.

Bill, the postie was looking for 5x100 not 5x114 like your ride ALso, I believe that you FN01r-c wheels are 17x9; 5zigen doesn't make a 17x9.5 right?

Meh, I stand corrected. I should have said for street fitment. I know many people are running 17 / 18X9.5+ with super stiff springs for auto-x and track (I had a set of 18X10 on my car for a sec), but these wheels stick out past the fender and wouldn't really be applicable for every day driving.

Just as a note, you can IMHO redrill your 5x100 rotors for 5x114 duty. There are a few aftermarket rotor companies that are selling "dual fitment" rotors.

The wheels were for the back of a Porsche. They were +65 offset. We used 25mm spacers that converted the PCD from 5X130 to 5X100 (intended for VW owners who want to run Porsche wheels) which also allowed the wheels to clear the Brembos. They we had to get shorter springs so that the wheels could fit closer to the coilovers shafts. In all, it was a pain in the butt but 18X10 do fit on a stock bodied Impreza without sticking out past the fenders (too much ).

I'm also looking at 9x17s for my street WRX, but not sure which tyre or offset that I should be going for.
I'm running stock springs, but will be changing over for tein springs soon.

Thanks
RD
