So I am working on the financial officer (aka wife) and had a thought. I have 2 sets of wheels (winter/summer) and wanted to verify that Subaru hasn't changed the wheel lug pattern, like they did on the sti's. I have the standard lgt 17" wheels with winter tires (good for the buckets of rain) and lgt spec b 18" wheels with with some good and sticky tires for the summer. I want to keep the 18" on to the outback.

Thanks

Pretty much everything from the mid 1990's on, with exception to STI and Tribeca, has the 5x100 bolt pattern. Offset has varied, but typically not enough to cause issue.

Wheels fit fine but check the overall diameter. I ran my 05 LGT winter tire wheels "17 on my 08 Outback 17" factory setup and my odometer and speedometer were off noticeably. While the wheels were the same the tire profile was enough to make a difference.

Yep, if I have my running done right, the 18" s will need new rubber just in time.
