Need pics of Outbacks with 32 OFFSET!

Anyone have pictures of an Outback running 32 offset? I would like to see how much they sit out...

The particular wheel I would be getting is:
Motegi Racing MR118 17x8 Offset 45
But depending on fitment, I would be curious about running 32 offset instead.

Thanks for any help with pics!!!
Ill post mine once I get it.

Try playing around this calculator. It will give you an idea of what you can do

I’m running 18x7.5 with a 42mm offset and they stick out about 16mm

I really appreciate that. Good looking OB!
Im trying to get an idea of how much 32 will stick out, visually... im thinking 45 offset, but 32 would be half an inch more and Im trying to imagine it... need those pics to confirm my desire!

Thanks man!

From what the calculator is showing if stock is 16x6.5 at 45mm 17x8 at 32mm it will push the rim out about 32mm (about 1.26”)

That calculator is too much for me.. i appreciate your help..
I thought that the difference from 45 to 32 would be 13 millimeters, and from what google says, that equates to .5 inches.

If what you?re saying is accurate, that would be just fine by me. I think thats extra stance would really make the new subie shine..

Yes your right 45 to 32 is 13 but you have to add the with in to going from 6.5 to 8


I put in 225/60/16 for tires and 16x6.5 if that is stock for your subie and
225/55/17 for tires and 17x8
The link is setup with this in it. Only bad thing I see is Positive scrub radius (about 13 mm). Scrub radius will be changed by 13 mm, this may affect the car's handling. If you scroll down the page you’ll see all the differences between stock and what you would like

I really appreciate your help. Its a little over my head...

But stock comes as 225/45r18 i think..

I would be putting on 245/65r17 with a 17x8 wheel, 45 offset but do you think I could go 32 offset with no issues? Just to stick out a touch more?

Man you are awesome thanks!
I guess I should have prefaced this entire conversation by mentioning I will have a LPadventure 2? lift running this setup...

Can that calculator take this into consideration?

I don’t think so, all this calculator does is shows you the difference between stock wheels and tires and a custom set of wheels and tires you would like to use. But if you plan on putting a lift setup on that would give you even more room to bo what you want. The only trouble I saw was the tire would be really close to the finder but with the life setup should be fine. But the lift setup may change the scrub radius point which may affect the handling.My advice would be is talk to a tire guy and pick his brain on it (any tire guys out there?)
