Well the xd9 does come in white but it's prob gonna be a hard one to find, ESP with an offset above 38et. I know there's multiple vendors on both NASIOC and eBay that sell Work wheels. Do some searching on both sites, grab the vendors names that have posted them for sale, and hit them up with your specific color/bp/width/offset requests.
And when you're speaking of offset here's my .02 on wheels for the WRX. Widening the wheel to a 18x9" wheel calculates to roughly 25mm in added overall width. That added width has to be distributed somewhere. About 12mm would be added to each side of the hub on an "imaginary" 53et OEM (trying to keep the explination easy) type of wheel. It just so happens that there's about 12mm of space left on an OE offset/width setup before the wheel would pass the edge of the wheel well. So if you could find an 18x9" wheel with an offset of 53et you'd be perfect....essentially. But I promise you there's no such wheel and that would never work on a lowered car...maybe not even an OE suspension setup due to added inside offset and height of an 18" wheel. So that's where the problem starts to come into play.
Almost any wheel that's 18x9" is going to be made with a 45et - 35et setup...I know it should be a crime against WRX's lol! If you added even say a 45et to an application like I described above, you'd now be 8-18mm past the fender. So that's why you see SO MANY people with wheels sitting outside the wheel well...cause that's where all the good options are for wheels...inside offset widths not good for our cars. And if you start putting those kind of offsets in play on a WRX it's greatly going to effect performance of the front end in multiple ways negatively and cause front end parts to wear out prematurely.
So basically, wheel companies need to start accommodating for Subarus ridiculous OE offset. I just wouldn't hold your breathe on that lol! I'd recommend staying with an 8" wheel and trying to find something between 53et - 45et at most! That'll effect your OE offset but not enough to drastically effect performance IMO.
I'm sure someone will chime in and help with the rolling of fenders info as I'm not very knowledged on it. I gotta say though that if you do go with an aggressive suspension setup, push out your offset aggressively, and roll your fenders...you're asking for trouble in many ways.
Best of luck OP I've yet to buy wheels due to the fact there's NO wheels to my liking withing my recommended specs above.
And sorry for the long winded explanation. Wheel width/offset is very hard to put in words....
