New 2012 WRX winter tire question

Hi all, I am new here. Just purchased a new 2012 WRX Limited 5-door a month ago. Love it so far and plan to be a regular part of this forum. I have been reading all the posts I can about winter tires and have determined A) I will need them and B) it's all pretty confusing. It's well documented on here that the stock is 235/45R17. I found a guy who has brand new (less than 500 miles) Firestone Winterforce tires mounted on OZ wheels. He had these on a G35. The size is 225/45R17. Typical 5-lug pattern I believe. Would these work on a 2012 WRX?

Tires will, but not the wheels. G35s have a different bolt pattern.

tire rack has a couple wheels on clearance for $59 or $69 each along with dunlop wintersport 3D's 235/45R17 for $187

They also mount and balance for free if you buy both. No, I have no connection to tire rack.
