Trying to cross-search across other models and their respective brake sizes in preparation for wheel/tire suspension upgrades. Whatever else is the same or bigger in terms of brakes and respective aftermarket wheels, I am assuming it should fit.

2014 forester XT has 12.4" front vented rotor with 2 piston caliper, 10.9" rear vented rotor with 1 piston caliper.

As far as I know these are slightly bigger than the wrx (11.6") but smaller than sti (13"), so if a wheel i am considering fits an sti with the thick brembo calipers I should be ok?

I would not limit your self to wheels that clear Brembos. Brembo clearance has more to do with the spoke design of the wheel and the width of the caliper not the diameter of the rotor.
