Hey what size is your roof rack I'm trying to get the same one for my 88 subaru gl wagon! I've also seen pictures of your car on a different website I don't remember which one but how big did you have the tires when you had it at stock height?

I forgot how big the roof rack is, I can measure it today and post it up. As for the tires, they were about 26.6" in total diameter. I did have to trim the front fenders and it also rub on the rear wheel arch going over pretty bad railroad tracks. I would try to find a tire that is about 25" total. Something like a 195/75 or 205/70. Are you planning on running 14s or going bigger? 15" would be the way to go for a lot more tire options. 14" are starting to fade out as are 13" are non existent, unless you want some cheapie whitewall radials :P

Well I'm trying to find something with 4x140 pattern but nothing really in my area. I'm thinking of converting to 5 or 6 if I don't find anything.

Go with 6x139 wheels, it will be easier to convert them and drill them properly.

 

The rack is 45x50" by the way.

EA82 fired up for the first time in months. I hooked everything back up in a hodge podge manner just to make it to the Subaru show Aug 17th. I am far from done but will continue with the heavy cutting/welding after the show. For now I am going to finish up some minor things and get the rear of the car back on the ground, take it for a spin and make sure everything is working as it should!

 

Haven't heard an old Subie rumble in some time now.
