There's a guy here in Laramie with a pretty nice Legacy and he's selling a set of 17's he had on it for cheap ($300). Tire size is a 205/40R17 with lots of tread. I'll hopefully be picking these up in a couple weeks from him when I get some money that a friend owes me. Here's a pic of the rims on his car.

I am thinking about getting them powder coated bronze to go with the gold on my RX but I'll have to see how they look first. Then you'll be able to see my 2 pot calipers and drilled rotors in the front:headbang:

ok I've already talked to subaru_styles about it cause he seen them over on the rallitek forum. I'll have to roll my fenders a bit but that'll be later when I get some coilovers and such to bring the ride height of my car down. Offset is about 42mm IIRC.

Oh, come on guys, the car in the pic is a mid '90's Legacy...

42mm offset? Your going to have to do more than roll your fenders when you want to lower the car.. Remember those Konig 16s I had on my wagon? tires got tore the eff up.. and that was with my car more than an inch higher than it is now and the rear fenderwells rolled.
