Default 16" 06 Impreza 2.5i rims on an 01 Legacy L wagon?

I've heard that OEM rims between Impreza and Legacy models fit well from one model to another but I just want to confirm that the following rims will fit my 01 Legacy L wagon without any problems:

OEM Subaru Wheel (5 Spoke)
- Made in Japan
- Manufactured by Enkei
- 5x100 Bolt Pattern
- 16x6.5
- +55 Offset


I want to mount 205/55/16 tires on these rims and just want to make sure that there are no fitment or rubbing issues. The wheel wells on my 01 Legacy wagon look a lot smaller than on my 04 WRX. Either that or I need to get my eyesight checked!

Thanks!
Cheers,

No problem at all with that offset. And bolt pattern matches up between the legacy and imprezza (other than the sti)

6.5 should be no problem. I have 7" and 215 width tires with no rubbing, and 225 will fit ive been told with slight rubbing at times

Yes. Just make sure the tire size is proportional to what you've upgraded from so that you ensure your speedo is accurate. The 04 WRX does have slightly more room under the fenders.

if you do go 225s or greater, just watch your rear fenders. the 225s on my tires used to rub like crazy when i turned, but now i only hear it if my car is way loaded down in the back.

on the other hand sybir was running 235s, or some insane number on his rims, and he had no rubbing issues whatsoever...
