winter rims

This winter will be my first with my WRX and I am wanting to put some good winter tires on it with some plain black winter rims. A friend of mine that runs a tire shop told me that it needs special rims because the WRX has an unusual offset. Does anyone have any suggestions for winter rims??

Go to Tirerack.com they have winter packages for a pretty good price you can get wheels with snow tires if thats what you want

How would a wrx wagon do in the snow? I'm curious because it may be my snowboard rig next winter.

A WRX wagon would do no different then the sedan in the snow and the sedan does well.

As for winter rims, I picked up a set of '00-'01 Impreza RS rims. They are a little wider so I am running 225s. Tirerack.com is a good bet, or get a extra set of stock rims and then get some tires. I have a set of WRX rims w/ 13k on the tires. If your intrested, PM me for details.
