I put '03 WRX wheels on my '03 outback no problem.....although the stance will be narrower than wider.

You do realize that your speedo, odo and gearing will be 5% off though, right? These tires are smaller than the OB ones, at least on the '97 OB they're 205/70/15. Just an FYI if you didn't know already.
EDIT: found a few threads w/ pics:

205/70/15 / 205/55/16
Original / WRX
Sidewall 5.6" / 4.4" = difference of 1.2"
Radius 13.1 / 12.4 = difference of .7"
Diameter 26.3 / 24.9 = difference of 1.4"
Circumference 82.6 / 78.2 = difference of 4.4"
The tire diameter difference is quite a bit more than .25", just wanted to clear that up.
Post up some pics please, we'd love to see the new setup!
