I changed this post a little when I actually got down and read the tiny print on the rims.
I was misled by the description I saw on the bill.
They are actually 6.5 "

The rims are only 50 mm offset as compared to the supposed 55 mm that came with the car.

I think they are from a Saab as I saw a "saabaru" wagon driving around with them on yesterday.

The Sava Snow tires remain the stock 205/55 HR 16.

The change in offset is only 5 mm.

But the driving experience is fine.

Anybody out there use these rims before?
Looking around on the net I found it almost impossible to find any info on subaru steel wheels.

I am actually amazed that my tire guy found them.
I would recommend the overall combination.
These wheels are hub centric.
What is the difference between j and jj?

I use a 16x7 Speedline with a +53 os in the nicer months, and for the winter, I use 15x6 steelies from my old 95 Impreza. Both are hub centric, and I imagine yours are as well. Got a picture?
