I have asked around and gotten various opinions from a Subaru Dealer and friends and tire shops.

I have stock 205/55 R16 tires on my 04 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport. I can get a good price on Hakkas that came off an 03 Outback Wagon. They are 215/60 R 16.

I have done the calculators, and I've never run different tire sizes on my Subarus. I just am not in the know... Are these going to be too wide and tall to put on my car? Would I need different rims? Should I just shell out more money and buy ones that are the same specs as mine?

The Impreza rims have an offset of +55 while the outback rims have +48, so the rims should fit fine and they will stick out about 12mm (0.5") more. The Outback rim & tire setup will also fill out the wheel well by another 16mm, I am not sure if if they will clear the fender or not though...
