Nice...

I noticed a big difference in handling with the lower profile tires on our MY95 sedan jumping from 14 inch to 16.

How about yours?

I like the wheels. They seem to look better on most other Subarus than WRXs. The only problem I see is that they should have taller tires on an Outback.

Here's a not so great picture of my 93 legacy with those wheels at the top of Mt. Wison:

I guess taking a better one is another reason for me to go back up there.

They really look great, starkiller. I think the size and proportion are perfect for the Outback. What size rubber do you have on them?

I think they look great, thanks for posting the pics.

Those are pre '05 WRX wheels, correct? I was thinking in another post you were looking at '05's for your OB... in any event, I like those. I have thought of doing this for my car, it'd be nice to have some better handling. But, I've gone the other direction, moving to a slightly larger a/t tire.

yeah, they are the 2004 ones...i did have a line on some 2005 ones that were bronze but they had the re92's on them and that kinda killed the deal...the rims were really nice but i didnt want to have tires that honestly do s&&k and the triple treads were rated #1 in their class by tirerack and their customers so it was kinda a nobrainer which for me is a good thing :D
