Will Scion Tc wheel fit to 97 OB Limited?
Posted 13 August 2008 - 02:51 PM
I am thinking about replacing the alloy wheels on my 97 Outback Limited, mainly to save some weight.
I think 97 OB limited wagon has 15&7, 5X100 bolt pattern with 50mm offset. I am thinking about buying a set of used wheels from Scion Tc with following spec.
(PCD/Size: 5x100 / 17x7 +45)
With only 5mm difference in offset, it seems that they would work. I would like to hear what more knowledgible members have to say.
Thanks in advance,

The seller was on my way back home and he agreed that I can test fit one of the wheels on my Outback.
Sure enough, the centor bore size for Scion Tc wheel was to small to fit to Outback.
Not knowing how to enlarge the centor bore (and also the concern about structural rigidity if it was done), I passed this deal.

Would 45mm offset make the wheel stick out and put more strain?
