15" Rims on a 2003 Outback?
Posted 14 January 2004 - 11:35 AM
I would like to by an extra set of 15” rims for the 2003 and put 4 snow tires on it. Unfortunately I was told that they would not fit. The dealer didn’t seem to know why. They thought it was either because of the dish/backspacing of the rims. But they didn’t know for sure, one mechanic thought the caliper was too tall and it would hit on the smaller diameter rim.
My question is: Is the caliper too tall for the smaller diameter, or is the caliper to wide and the back spacing won’t work?
Has anyone out there successfully put 15 inch rims on a 2000-2004 outback?
I know I could go out tomorrow and buy a set of 16” rims and tires for the car but I would like to have the ability to interchange tires between cars. I would give my wife the 4 best tires next winter and put them on her car.
I plan on pulling the tires off when the weather breaks to do some experimenting on my own but it’s only going to be 2 degrees here and I don’t have a garage yet.
Thanks in advance.
