Not this bs again.

The manufacturers say that as a blanket statement to cover their asses for liability reasons. It makes more sense for them to say

"Do not use on OEM wheels"
Instead of
"Do not use on OEM wheels except for [this car] and [this car] and [this car], those are OK"

Most Subarus (I'll say most because I'm not positive if all) use the same 60* taper conical seat that all tuner lugs use.

Therefore it is perfectly fine to use "tuner" lugs on Subaru OEM wheels with the same seat.
