If you go with the Toy rims are you gonna change the hub or drill out the rim looks come into play here, and if you change your hub no more stock subaru bolt pattern.....
I would go for 15" steel pugs with the normal lug nut. most advantages and tire choices for the money.

With the Toys, they are more necessary when you move up to bigger than 28 inches, or live in a pug free zone.

More tire between the rim and ground. You can deflate them more offroad.
The pug rims have a decent offset.
The Toy rims tend to give too much offset, meaning you have to cut more to make them fit without rubbing on turns.

So, what width Pugs did you use Noah? The Interco web site says to use 6.5" or wider, but I can't seem to find any that wide. I know where I can get a bunch of 5" but that seems a little narrow.
I beleive that's the only width that pugs came in....AND, I beleive many people have run swampers on them anyway. I've been researching this myself....although I do hope someone corrects me if I'm wrong.

i'm just thinking because pugs are near impossible to find where i am... but its not like i need rims anytime soon... because i don't have a lifted rig... or getting one in the near future... so ya...

There are 14x6" steels, but they're not common. The only reason I know is because I have a set .
are they the round hole style?
I've seen 2 sizes of the oval hole. 5" and 5.5"
and 2 sizes of the round hole. 5.5" (has a slightly raised lip around holes) and a 6" that is "flat" around the holes... (I am running a set of these too...)
