I dont like the rims but I'm not picky either. My hold up is the fact that the sidewall is 40... 80% of the time my girlfriend will be driving the car in town, but living in oregon and california camping and some gravel roads are driven on for sure. Would i regret going with this setup?
My other option is a set of subaru rims for $175 (also on craigslist and they're spray painted black?!?) and then having to buy new tires that run $150 each give or take.

5x100 bolt pattern isn't that rare. Shared on Chryslers (Cirrus, sebring,Neon etc.) and cavaliers and such. You can usually find a matched set in a junkyard on the cheap.
Tires - used can be the way to go. You can buy new for around $100-$150 per tire or if you shop around on craigslist and such you can generally find almost new for $100-$300 for a whole set.
For light off roading, just know your clearances and don't do anything silly. A lift is often a good idea for any real off roading, but a stock Impreza will do fine of dirt roads and such.

There's probably some good options in the classifieds section.
