Tires & Trivia question
Posted 09 September 2003 - 08:27 PM
So I'm wondering, how many of you have put slightly larger tires on your OBWs, and was it a good idea? I'm not thinking of anything huge, just going from the stock 205/70R15s to a 215/70. By my calculations that's only 10mm wider overall and about 1/2" greater diameter. What I don't know is if there is some peculiarity of the Subaru that this might affect (extremely close tolerances or something.)
Anyone done it? And would you do it again?
Oh, and I almost forgot the trivia question: Was the 2nd generation Legacy ('95-'99) ever available in the US as a FWD-only car? What year did Subaru go to all-AWD?

PS- Yes and 97
I believe the so called second Generation of legacy started in 94, and they offered FWD and AWD version through 96. 97 was the first year of the all AWD.

As opposed to driving THRU the garage, like a lumber delivery truck did a few winters ago.
