Looking for a new set of rims for my '08 LL Bean Limited. Looking for something silver or mostly silver. Can be with or without tires or sensors, open to a few different things. The only thing I don't want are the larger tires that go on the newer outbacks, they won't fit my car. Looking for something in very good shape, little to no curb rash. Willing to travel in the northeast or discuss shipping options if you're not in the New England Area. 17" or 18" are what I'm looking for. Post here or PM me anything you guys have and want to unload.

I would go to some pick and pulls and find some 2005-2014 subarus with 17" rims.
(seeing as how there are so many subarus in new england).

toss the tires on them.

_____

and repainting rims is no big deal, not just for color but for mild scratches.
(just need some index cards to stick around the tire bead.)

____

beware if you see them listed here or elsewhere, in bolt patterns:
2015-present outback / legacy rims are 5x114.3, and yours are 5x100.

2000-2004 outbacks/legacy/ and foresters are typically on 16".

I've looked in the local yards and on car-part, haven't found anything in decent shape or in a complete set of 4, or if I have found a decent set it was too much money. I've also been looking for crosstrek rims but now I'm not sure if they would look right on my car. It's the two tone graphite/silver scheme. Those wheels are black (except for the hybrid ones) and would look off I think.

Crosstrek wheels (the early ones anyway) look good on every Subaru.

Im in 10804, and because they were so young we were trying to sell for 1000 but theres a bit of rash on one rim and a hair of rash on another due to being backed into when sitting on the driveway, soooo 600?

I'm in Rhode Island, we could meet somewhere probably. Send as many pics as you can, and of any damaged areas. Also curious what brand/model of tires.
