15's will fit (every Subaru rim will fit except SVX and 2005 STi) and so will 16's (i.e. WRX takeoffs).

Good luck, Sparkster. I have an older set of 15" wheels on my '91 Legacy; not a problem.

Craig, please accept my apologies.

When you commented about my tires I had to go check,

I was wrong, they are 205/55 R16's

The 225/50 R16s are on my RS -
they will be going on my 93 Legacy Turbo wagon.

Will report.

again I am sorry for the misinformation

Surely stock diameter would require 205/50R16 ??

In my opinion thats what looks best, 17 and 18 get too big and make the brakes look puny. The added weight of most larger rims will also be negative for handling.

16 inchers with an inch of lowering...my next project, right after I win the lottery ;-)

That may be true with Legacy's that came with 14's stock. However, the Turbo's came with 15's and bigger brakes. Besides, today's aftermarket wheels tend to be lighter weight.
