I've got steelies on my SG forester, and the spare was different completely to the other rims, visually very similar to the one on that Foz.

As I'm running a 6 wheel rotation I wanted them all to match so picked up extras from the wreckers and got rid of the original spare.

Wouldn't surprise me if he's got spare rims all round - would be quite a cheap solution

@Beachworm
Ive never seen this design on a SH Forester here in Europe.
May be the wheels are different between Europe and USA/Australia?
The Forester SH steel wheels over here are 5 or 10 holes.

Ive send an email to RetroRoo , a Subi Workshop in Northglenn. They work at the Subi from time to time...maybe they know something.
This style of wheel was never actually on the car. When they come with alloy wheels they put one of these steel ones in as a spare. I agree with Ben up North. It looks like he's collected a set of spare wheels to run instead of the steel ones they put on the 4 corners of the car at delivery. I sold mine with an unused OEM tyre without any problem at all.

I was looking at some steelies for my Foz a while back and think I came across these. Made by Alcar- ebay link below

Close, but two extra holes.

Desired rims are 16 hole, the Alcar ones are 18.

@Barnboy
Thank you for the link.
They look very similar indeed with 2 extra holes.

But the pic is only a sample and i dont trust samples anymore...

"SOLVED" -> RetroRoo confirmed that These have been VW wheels but they did not tell the size...i will investigate further.

I think the ones Barnboy quoted are the better Option because they are the correct hub size (56,1mm) and bolt size (12mm).
The VW rims i found are 57,1mm and 14mm?

@all the others
Thank you very much for Support

Regarding Alcar:
The model number is 9552 but the pic lists either a 10 hole or 18 hole wheel.
If you Choose in the configurator: Subaru / Forester / SG or SH
-> The pic of the wheel is 10 hole
-> the wheels on the Subaru model are 18 hole!
