You have to watch downsizing. The wheels have to clear the brake calipers. I looked and the Impreza's came with 205/55/16" Tires, so OEM was 16" rims. Verify before purchasing new ones. Check the owners manual and or local tire shop. I know the WRX models came with 17" rims. 15" would be too small. I'd buy used, frequent a salvage yard/auto recycler, they might have a set laying around or online classifieds.
