Default SG Forester Steelies?

I have looked around on the forum for recommendations on steel rims for SG Forester and searched online stores but have not succeeded. I'm not a big fan of the stock SG steelies and want some mean looking steelies.

Is it possible to have a tyre store have the rims custom drilled for the 5x100 stud pattern?

I could go with alloys if there are no steelies but would rather steel rims.

Leaving the legalities aside, it's not just a case of drilling holes. You will need to taper them as well. Then you will need to look at the legalities and insurance implications

You need to keep an eye out for Audi rims:

Not on an L-Series, I plan to own a SG Forester in the future.

Factory alloys are plenty strong enough and there are many quality aftermarket options.

I like OEM alloys, they're light & strong, but if you want steelies there are a few options. 15x7 0 offset Dynamics D holes are popular


Dynamic D - Dynamic Wheel Co


There are also Sunraysia 15x7 (?) +35 offset by Dynamics

^ but will they fit over the brake calipers of an SG without any modifications?


My search for those wheels for a 2003 SG results in "Sorry, no wheel has been found available for your vehicle. Please call our wheel specialists on 1800 FOR WHEELS to discuss other options."

Yes Dynamics fit over SG calipers, afaik with no modification. This is with a SubieLiftOz 4.5" Monster lift kit, 30x9.5r15 Silverstone AT117 tyres on 15x8 Dynamics
