Does anyone have pictures of their own OB or other Gen4 OB's with OEM Subaru wheels from other models? I'm interested in seeing what the Impreza Sport, Legacy Premium or even the Crosstrek wheels look like on the OB.

Thanks in advance,
Rob

The BRZ wheels are tops in my book for a swap to my 06 OB.

^ Thanks, pt37. The 2014 Forester wheels look great. Not a fan of the BRZ wheels on the OB..they look cheap, IMO.

For reference:

Still interested in seeing the Impreza Sport wheels on the OB, anyone with photoshop skills care to take a stab at it?

Keep in mind that the tire sidewalls won't be so low-profile on the Outbacks as depicted here. The default rims for all vehicles pictured here are 17", so any further photo-shopping should replace the rims but not the tires to get the proportions correct (unless the rim size is different of course).

And Crosstrek wheels:


I'm usually not a fan of dark wheels on a dark color, but these aren't bad. I think the 2014 Forester wheels are still my favorite but I'd have to see them in person.

How would you guys go about getting a set of wheels?
Probably the folks on another Subaru board.
I personally would rather have function over form
so GOLD Enkei RPF01 > Oem subaru wheel (except 04 BBS STI wheels)

AO River.. Could you possibly recreate those last two in Graphite Gray?

Those are pretty good but its hard to imagine since There is a noticeable difference between that blue and Gray.

Thanks

Edit: The XV and Forester wheels on a GG Outback.

Impreza Sport Wheels 13' Outback SAP

Here are two pics of my '13 Outback SAP with '12/'13 OEM Impreza Sport wheels. The gunmetal grey wheels make the white Outback look a bit more aggressive compared to the stock wheels in my opinion.

The Impreza Sport wheels look surprisingly good on the OB. Much better so than they looked when they were originally on the OB. The finish makes a huge difference.

I'll be watching eBay for Crosstrek or '13 Forester wheels. The trick will, of course, be convincing the wife that it needs it.

I got a 2012 wrx with base model rims, might rotate some rims and tires for a few hours and see how big a difference it is

Can you post a few more pics, better quality if you can. They look great but seem a bit more tucked in than the stockers.
