16" WRX Wheels on 1999 Outback?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the 1999 Legacy Outback Wagons were available with 16" tires and if WRX and Legacy wheels will interchange? I have an opportunity to purchase a set of 205/55ZR16 tires and wheels off a WRX. I've got 205/65R15's on my Outback. I'd hate to buy them and have a fit problem. I'm also concerned about any issues with the anti-lock brakes, and speedo. Sure appreciate any advice.

You will be going 2.5% slower than your indicated speed with the new tyres/wheels i've seen several outbacks with wrx wheels so i cant imagine you'll have any problems abs sensors dont go on the wheel they're on the hub, and we have outbacks here in OZ with 16's as std equipment

I put a set of WRX (205/55R16) wheels and tires on our 95MY Legacy L (195/70R14) fit perfectly and fixed the speedometer that always was a little fast anyway by about 2-3%. I checked it via the interstate mile markers as well as the mile-a-minute test of doing a steady 60MPH for 1 minute to see if the mile marker line was crossed at 60 second intervals.
