Are the REAR brake disc(rotors) the same between the ST205 and ST202?

I ask this since i bought rear calipers for a ST205, under the pseudo-false information that they are direct bolt ons...they bolt on...but as i suspect my stock discs are far too small.

The drum on the 205 is deeper.

yeah the ST202 ones are around 269 mm in diameter, stock ST165 ones are the same in that regard as well...thus again too small...

i have looked and looked most of the day today at a variety of different options of 5x100 pattern disc...using the autozone site, and looking at them specs given from their car look up feature...i have looked up ALOT...

well the ST205 ones are 315mm in diameter...and the most close thing i can get that is correct in diameter and hat size is this:
http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Duralast-Brake-Rotor-Rear/2008-Subaru-Impreza-AWD/_/N-jrwbjZ8knrr?counter=1&filterByKeyWord=brake+rotor&fromString=search&itemIdentifier=914217_0_2708_35794

the thickness of said disc is a bit much...but not bad...but the issue is it is 5 x 114...but i can have my machinist friend drill it out for me to a 5 x 100 pattern

or i have this one:
http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Duralast-Brake-Rotor-Rear/2006-Subaru-Impreza-AWD/_/N-jo4whZ8knrr?counter=0&itemIdentifier=40220_0_2708_

it is 5 x 100...but the hat is WAY huge, and the diameter is too small...
of the options i have searched for these are the most close ones i have found

and since i am bolting this to an ST165 knuckle and hub, i used this as reference:
http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Duralast-Brake-Rotor-Rear/1988-Toyota-Celica-All-Trac/_/N-iuedlZ8knrr?counter=0&filterByKeyWord=brake+rotor&fromString=search&itemIdentifier=156920_0_2708_

again i used these too for APPROXIMATE reference:

So yeah...i am going to search further...but my next options are either buy discs from the UK...or from someone in Canada...ugh
