I was thinking of getting some new wheels for my Outback. I like the Legacy GT 16's. Anyone know where I could find a deal on something like those... or even what I could expect to pay at maybe a junkyard or something? Take-offs for a Dealer?

call tirerack-- they sell takeoff's at excellent prices. Stick w/ oem or = to oem weight as to not upset susp calibration for unsprung weight. Sub oem wheels tend to be really light.

Is the backspacing the same for pretty much all the subaru's? Are those WRX wheels a good fit? I haven't been able to find anything about anyone with an Outback wagon like mine putting them on.

any subaru OE wheel 16" should fit just fine,
no need to be model specific (legacy vs impreza)

example ...
i totalled my 99 GT
one of my pals with an 00 RS put the GT wheels on
with no reprocussions what-so-ever :)

they bolt right up and are the correct offset.

good luck to ya!

Jamie
