Default For those of you w/ sti wheels on your leggy...

I'm about to pick up a set of the 2004 17" gold sti wheels if I can find the right deal. For those of you who bought some for you 2004 and earlier legacy, I have two questions:

1. what did you pay? It looks like $800 to $1000 is average price right now.

2. do you have pics of them on your car? Even better, you have pics of them on a white legacy? Mine is an '01 white and gold outback. It already has wheels with gold trim, so I thought these would look great...

by the way, tirerack.com says that a +1 tire for my outback would be a 225/55, 17. Does this sound correct?

I think that tire size would be ok. You should have enough room. Nothing wrong with sticking to the stock STi tire size either.

225/45/17 is stock re70 size. Those are just a tad wider, not any taller...

a bit wider won't kill me... as long as it isn't enough to rub. i like that the outback has tall enough tires to do a +1 and still keep enough rubber to have a comfortable ride...

The issue that I've had with my Imprezas and Legacys is that when I go to anything wider than 215, the front wheels try to pull themselves straight and takes more force to turn. I prefer the 215s.

Whatever Tirerack suggests for a +1 size is what is closest to your stock diameter.
