But if you're wanting higher offset wheels... SSR seems to be the only ones over +48 at the moment.

Comps & GT2's are both +50 - neither come in bronze.

I've successfully run 17x8" +48 wheels on an '03 wagon without issue, but my suspension wasn't stock or just some springs.

With only prodrive springs & swaybars I ran 17x7.5" +48 Rotas with 225/45-17 tires.

Lots of options. Figure out what you're going to do for suspension before you worry about what wheels fit.
I'm going with coilovers and possibly swaybars down the road. My first choice would be Gram Lights 57S which are 48ET, with a low car I was worried that offset wouldnt be enough, althought he coilovers will provide some camber.

I guess I can roll the fenders if need be. . .
