Legacy 3.0R Tire/Wheel Sizes / BIG BRAKES
Posted 29 January 2004 - 11:27 AM
In the meantime I am trying to concentrate on what wheels to get. I asked Subaru of Germany what wheel and tire sizes can be used.
So I received the answer today. No 16" allowed! The baby has to wear at least 17" shoes. The font brakes are too big for 16" wheels.
The following sizes are already stated in the car papers for 17":
Hmm, that means I have to throw on 17" even for winter!
Also possible are:
215/45 18 - 7,5x18 wheel
225/35 18 - 8x18 wheel
I am trying to find some aftermarket wheels with 8x18 and putting the 225/40 on it. Hope this will be a good comprimise of looks/handling and riding qualities.
I don't know how this translates to the '05 US Legacy GT, but I guess that it will be the same brake system considering the power.

I was looking at the new Legacy during the IAA 03 in Frankfurt. They had one Station wagon with the factory 17" wheels and also one with 18" wheels. I have to admit that the 17" appear a little bit "small" for the car, the 18" look much better also the body of the car seems to be more compact.
You can take a look at the 18" wheels under the following link:
I am trying to get them elsewhere but Subaru (they want ¤300 for one piece!)
