Default Ultimate Tire & Wheel Size Thread

Looking around a bit, trying to read, it can take a lot of reading to get a definitive answer on which sizes will fit with which car & year... So maybe a thread condensing all we know could be worth it?

I'm thinking getting that classified by model, then generation, then rim size, then each tire, noting if they do fit but with a modification.etc. I'll go thru the first page of the section and add those that seem clear, but feel free to let me know if I screw something up, or if you know one I missed!

Forester
Impreza
Legacy
Misc

That's a start from reading the first page. Your help is welcomed. I started reading that thread: http://offroadsubarus.com/showthread.php?t=1817 however it's not always clear which car they're on. I'll keep going thru it. Any help is welcomed. Cheers!

I like the idea, I'm doing a similar thread with lift kits, just slowly working on it when I have time

Do you mind if us mods/admins add too it? I could add abit as to some of the things. The Legacy/Liberty doesn't need to be there and same with the Impreza. The Lib/Leg is the same as the Outback and the Impreza is the same with the Forester... Remember too that in the US the different generations were bought out a year after Aus and Europe.

Dom't forget the L-Series(Leone) and Brumby(Brat) they are usedmore offroad than any newer Subie...

I think its a good idea.

I'll post mine up when I get a chance with pics. Mine needed a bit of modification to get them to fit.

Also please note; us Aussie's refer to the original Outback as a "Gen2" as it was on the Gen2 Legacy/Liberty platform. Whereas the yanks refered to it as a Gen1 hence the Outback designation has always varied between regions.

@taza: I did that as a starting point. And I actually got the idea from your lift kit thread

Sure, mods & admins are free to edit as they see fit!

Forester only has a 48 offset, Impreza has either 48 or 55 depending on the year.
