Looks great however very obviously illegal (at least without extended wheel arch flares?)

Need help again as Dynamic D's are not working. Trying to see if Dynamic can do custom offset on the Dynamic D wheels but need to wait for a reply from them. Other possible option is Audi Pepperpots, (1996-1003) does the rim fit over the Forester brake calipers without modification? Would need center bore spacer and different lugs or adapters for those rims to work.
Any other rims with the classic steel rim look that will fit and are within a reasonable offset? Need to be 15" as the tyre shop is holding tyres for me that are for 15" rims and the manager really doesn't want to see this Forester at his store anymore if it keeps going back and having tyres not fit.

How are they not working? 0 offset will make them sit out a bit & it increases the rubbing on full lock.

There are lots of other choices. Popular 15 alloy wheels are KMC Bully KM708, Motegi MR139, Konig Control, OX Wheels OX817, Black Rhino Boxer, Method MR502 or 501, Sparco Terra, Team Dynamics Pro Rally, etc.
Personally, I would go for the KMC Bully or Motegi, both look great & are reasonably priced here

Rubbing on full lock is the problem, really dont want any rubbing.

It's pretty easy to fix the rubbing for your size tyres. You will need to trim the plastic covering the pinch weld & probably have to hammer flat the weld a bit too (don't grind it off, just hammer it flat). You've only got 215s (27.7") tyres so it shouldn't need much. Attached is a photo of what was done on a SH Forester with 225/70/16 (same as 225/75/15).
