Has anyone tried mounting a 16" Rim on a 2011 WRX Sedan?

The car's too new to be in a store's database at this point. I was looking at going down a size in rims and width for my snow tires. But without going to a store and having them test fit a number of rims to find out about clearance.

So has anyone already done this? I love the 17x8's in the dry, but I'm thinking a 16x7 would be a lot better for the winter. I'm just a little concerned that a 16" rim won't clear the breaks.

Looking at calculators, a 215/55R16 should give me just about the same circumference as the OEM tires.

Thanks,

Thanks for the info, I had the same exact question.

Also, Robin2, how in the world did you get Plasma Blue on a WRX??? That isn't an STI in that pic, right? The wing is way to small.
WRX, he is in Canada. They get PBP instead of red.
