ha ha. Im not. You found a typo. lol I will fix. 5x100/5x4.5 same bolt pattern as jeeps or ford rangers. more wheel options in that bolt pattern. all the 5x100 offerings are positive offset.

If you look at the wagon above. It already has the wheels and adapters on. those are transferring over. you can see that they are 5 bolt. haha

going to start parting out the wagon this weekend. then haul away the body and start stripping everything out of the RX. the original rx trans and engine will be for sale if anyone is interested.

I want to say thank you. A while back we got into a huge debate on if that wheel would be even worth the swap. I was looking into lowering my wagon and was geting advice on doing the 6lug swap and useing the aluminum chevy 6 lug wheels. That looks great and if i ever lower a subaru i will be going that route. Good luck on your projects.

yeah it looks great. It looks even better in person.The offset of the wheel fits perfect it has 1955516 tires on the wheels. It looks almost factory. The only drawback to them is that the center hole in the wheel is too small to fit. You have to grind all the original tabs that are on the hubs that centered the original wheels flush. That takes a while. but the end result is awesome. those wheels and ws60 blizzaks. only took 1.25 oz of weight to balance the whole set. oe wheels are always way better quality than aftermarket.
