I hope you mean locating such at a junk yard, and repainting them,....vs. buying them at $100 plus new.

according to this:

https://www.wheel-size.com/size/subaru/outback/2017/

the offset for a 2017 outback should be 48-55mm,

and your Ford rims are only Offset (mm): 44.5

usually center bores are wrong.
not too worried there
The vast majority of aftermarket wheels are not offered with a Subaru 56.1 hub bore. Also the tapered lug nut for a steel wheel will do the job of centering the wheel. I’m more worried about the effects of the lower offset creating a handling problem or premature wear on steering components. Wheel size notes a lot about the changes to scrub radius but is assuming the factory setup is zero. I haven’t been able to figure out if that is true or not. I’ve read that a little positve scrub radius is good but how much more is bad? Method wheels only have a 38 or 42 offset and seem to be a popular option on Subaru’s.
