Default Hot Wheels !! A few quick photos of my 10+ year old "L".






And here is a "before" shot of the car with 14 inch steelies with the standard wheel covers:


I am thrilled with these wheels, even with the stock suspension, the ride feels firmer, and initial turn in is much quicker. Oh, and I like the look. Given how nice these wheels are (No corrosion, no curbing) I am not sure if really want to run them as my winter wheels. My current thinking is to run basic WRX wheels, or the older 15" alloy wheels in the winter. For a basic "beater", this car looks really nice.

Special thanks to janikphoto for selling me his wheels.

You can bet there's no road rash or curbing on those babies!!! I take good care of my stuff!!!


They look real good on your car. I'm glad they are working out!!! Definitely a visual improvement.


I'm still loving the 2004 sti rims that replaced those stockers. Every time I look at my car now, I am in awe of how amazing they are. Hopefully, those outback wheels will give you a similar feeling!!!

Nice! I have a set of the early outback rims getting refinished in my garage now, getting them ready to mount on my 96 wagon!

Both of those cars look amazing. When I switched my 15 inch steelies to my '98 RS gold wheels on my TS, the car looked better and handled much better. You are certainly correct about the turn-in, it was much sharper as well and added a lot of confidence to the overall handling.

Those aren't my tires, too... are they?!? If so, did you get the one with the slow leak fixed?

Nope. Outback wheels 225/60's are a tad to big for your basic grocery getting 2nd gen Legacy. These tyres are 205/55 Pirrelli P6's. I got a buddy who collects used Crown Vic cop cars... I figure your tyres will be perfect for a cop car.

lol I tried putting one of my Mom's BH outback wheels+tire on my BK GT Wagon. Didn't work very good.

Those are very very nice looking wheels for that car! Mad props!
