I wanted to get 15" steel wheels for snow tires with our 2001 OBW, but found that only 16" wheels will fit. The Forester has 16" OE wheels, but the L models have 15" wheels. However, I noticed that the L models have rear drums.

Do 15" steel wheels fit on the 01 Forester S models?

Yes, My 2002 Forester had 16" alloys for the summer and Steel 15" for the winter. HOWEVER 2003 and up can ONLY take the 16". Front Disks and rear disk or drums are to large for the older 15" rim.
