Will the XT rims from a SG9 work?

I'm contemplating selling mine, but prob not worth it.

They will fit LSS, seen a few SH XS's with them on.

Only real difference was the breadth, 215 (SG9) and 225 (SH)

I still have the 17" OE steel rims which were on my 2.5X... is this what you are looking for?

Both rims are 7.5j's

Both will accept 225 tires.

thanks guys, I had a set of 18" on that I have swapped with my mate as he is doing the whole coilover story and lowering his foz,
his 17s are from the outback with one original sh xt 17 as the spare, Im thinking of having them done in back, or selling and getting something else, not looking for steelies.

this is my mates car, these are the rims, Im looking for something closer to the s-edition or older sti wheels. 
I have found a set of sti wheels but they are 53 offset so probably wont clear strut and will require an adapter.

It's probably a bit late now, but if you're interested, I have a set of 2005 Outback 17's. I put 16's on in order to get a bit more off-roadish tyres than were available on the 17's. They take (and still have on them) 225/55 17.
