I just found a semi-local set of pristine WRX wheels with some pretty good tires that I can pick up at a bargain price. I'm all stock suspension on my '90 wagon. Should I expect any problems? From what I have read here, I don't expect any, but I'm just asking.

The wheels are 2002 oem 16x6.5 w 205/55/16 Potenzas. Damn, I was really hoping they would fit.

Interesting, I run 205-55-16s w/o issue on my 94 Legacy Turbo wtih H&R springs and Koni inserts. Heck I put on 225-50-16s and they didn't rub on the inside.
