My pickup truck had the same problem -- 14" wheels were OEM which was fine with me, but you can't get decent 14" radial truck tires any more. So I just went to 15" wheels, and a lower aspect tire (high aspect tires apparently went out of vogue along time ago too)

Hello crowd, I have a 1991 Soobie legacy 2wd. Off & on I've been keeping an eye out for a set of mag wheels but there's not much selection in 14" 5-bolt wheels. Can I use an adapter to convert 5-bolt to 4-bolt and is this advisable? Also, where would be a good place to look online for such an item?
To be *honest* I'm not too sure about back spacing, but it seems to me that 5lug X100mm is a standard Chrysler bolt pattern, why would you adapt? This might be useful to determine what might fit your situation:

The STI models do NOT use the 5x100 pattern. They use the 5x114.3 bolt pattern as seen on the SVX.
Since your car shares a bolt pattern with all the newer soobs, including the WRX and STI models, there are TONS of wheels available that will fit. Of course, finding them cheaply may be a challenge. However, you can usually get a good deal on some stock alloys from a WRX, forester, or outback that somebody took off when installing fancy wheels, and I think that some of those rims look really good on the early legacy.
