I just got back from wrenching on a 99 forester at the yard. 3 hours later I'm comparing them to my 02 wrx hatchback. At best there is a 1mm difference in bolt spacing. It seems barely noticeable. I can post pictures later..

I figured I'd post on here for advice before moving forward or calling an audible. Anyone have any experience with this? The pictures from this link tell a different tale.


What's going on?

Yes. Thanksfully the tires fit. They still sit a bit too close to the well, but no big deal on rubbing. I think I'm safe!:burnout:
