Winter is coming & i'm thinking about getting snows for the legacy.
It's a 2003 L, runs on 205/55 x 16 stock.

I was thinking of getting 195/60QR15 blizzak revos, mounted on some crappy 15x6.5 rims.

Not being familiar with 'minus-sizing', would these look OK? is the total circumference different than the stock 16" wheels? (I can't tell if the higher sidewall makes up for the lower rim diameter.)

Use the revolutions per mile to check the cricumfrence betwen the tires you have now and the blizzacks. The rotation per mile is found on the tire specs tab of any given tire.

My only worry about Minus sizing would be clearing the calipers, other than that you should have no troubles. Might throw off the speedo, but i'm sure you don't use it anyway.
