Now i still drive a subaru leone , a sedan from 1990 with ea82 engine.

Full options except 4wd and airco ;)

yes, those wheels are much nicer than the covers that were on there before...

Wheels look nice, but were not designed to fit your car. You might have a problem with the front brake caliper hitting the wheel, if you have vented rotors.

Real nice looking 'Ru. The Gold rims makes a big difference.

The wheels look really good! Never really thought gold would go that nicely with red but it does

The USMC seem to think Crimson (red) and Gold works well together.

They fit perfect , no problem at all with the frontbrakes.

 

These wheels coming from the previous model leone ( in the us loyale ).

In Europe these wheels where an option on the 4wd models at the early 80's

Its hard for me to tell because of the lighting and angles and the differences are subtle. The 80 to 84 wagon wheel types would not work on Subaru's from 85 up. Thats the way it is here in the US.

Yeah if you have worn brake pads then the wheels will fit fine but if you have new-ish pads than the calipers will hit on the spokes of the wheel

about the wheel clearance, you can grind off the edge of the calipers to correct that, or use ea82 spoke wheels. 85 and 86 ea82 calipers clar a lot better.

 

i like the gold wheels. it remids me of this:

Nice Ru, i like the gold wheels as well. As you can see from my pic here, I also enjoy adding colors to my Subie. Tell me Rene, is that a hitch? Do you have enough power to tow?

 

Thanks... meet Cool Runnings

Hi all...

Some update's from Holland..

After a inspection of the car , we discoverd some huge problem at the bottom :

dorpel1.jpg

It was possible to fixed it , but it costs about 400 euro's so i decided to say goodbey to the good old sooby.

I bought it in august 2006 for 250 euro's , and had it for 2,5 years with lots of fun and memory's

Usualy i drive 'low budget cars' , never spended more money then maximal +/- 500 euro's to buy a car and ride it for 2 or 3 years.

 

I agreed with my wive to spend a lot more cash for a car , so since may 15 we drive this one :
