08 Steelies clear 4/2 pots?

Does anyone know if 16" factory steel wheels off a 08 n/a impreza 2.5i will clear the 06-07 wrx 4/2 pot brakes? I have searched and searched but can't find a definitive answer. I do see people that have used forester Steelies. Reason I ask is cause Im trying to get together a budget winter set up and can get these free but have to make a 2.5 hour drive to pick them up. Would like to know for sure before I waste time and fuel.

400 miles, 6 hours, & $50 worth of fuel later I have a "free" set of 16" steel wheels off a 08 impreza. 2 forums, 3 Facebook groups, & research until my eyes bleed couldn't answer my question if these would clear the brakes so I took a risk and it paid off. So, for anyone looking for the answer to this question in the future.....yes they will work. Now time to find tires.

I would have said probably not, ha! Thanks for independent research!

On the subject of 4pot (06-07 WRX stock brakes) clearance for historical purposes, the spare tire from an 02-05 Impreza (or WRX) will NOT clear. I found that out the hard way.
