I'm thinking about trying some different Subaru wheels on my 2000 Outback wagon.
Would the wheels off a WRX, 2.5 RS, or Legacy be bolt-ons?
Has anyone tried this, and how does it look?
Is the offset for my stock 16 x 6.5 wheels 48?

Thanks for any thoughts and suggestions

I believe the offset is different from a Legacy to an Impreza. You better check around to make sure. It'll fit, but the wrong offset can be detrimental to wheel bearings and the tires may rub. Brian

WRX wheels on OBW

I have WRX wheels on my '03 OBW with no problem with fit or offset .
The offset on wrx wheels is 53mm not much from 48mm . It will not affect alignment or wheel bearings! Were talking millimeters not centimeters! I've talked to alot wheel/tires shops and a few millimeters will not affect it enough to worry about.

I mean this isn't a jeep or 4x4 with huge tires hangin out or a one of those beaners that look like a mickey mouse mobile go cart!

:D
