Did Subaru make or is their a 14" rim that will fit on my01 Forester?
Before anyone even asks why it's because I want to make up a set of these for strictly off road.

Have a set to take with me and put on at the park or when I'm up in W.V.
They come in a 27.5x9-14.

what is the height of that tire measured with a tape measure?

I think the general rule of thumb is cannot go down a size from factory, due to it hitting the brake caliper on the backside of rim


Now, I would like to pursue this for my lifted BRAT>

Supposed to be 27.5 inch which would fit under strut perch.
I know on the newer Foz's with 16in rims you can fit 15's with a little grinding on the caliper for clearance.
Just need to know if Subaru made a 14" rim with a 5x100 bolt pattern.

yes most of the 91-94 legacys had the 14".
also the 95 L wagon had some 14" star alloys.
impreza as well, year 93-97
all the above is the correct bolt pattern.

no they will not fit. your front dual piston calipers and larger rotors prevent them from working on your car. sorry

No worries,I've found 15" versions of virtually the same tires.
