Question Will subaru steel rims from 06 fit an 08

I just traded in my 06 2.5i Impreza Sportwagon for an 08 2.5i Impreza Wagon w/ Sport Package. I bought snow tires last year with subaru steel rims. I was wondering if the wheels will work with the new car.

I believe, and don't quote me that the offset of the 05' and earlier wheels was different than the 06'. That being said, look on ther inside of the wheels, and read the offset and size info. They will probably be the same or really close.

If it was me, and I had the car and the wheels on hand, I would try mounting one of the front steel wheels, and check the fit. Mount it on the hub, push and turn, rim flat on hub, with NO lug nuts installed, and check for interferences (caliper, rotor, strut - check front and back of tire/rim). If this seems ok tighten down the lugs finger tight, check again for binding, caliper clearence, etc. if all looks ok sock it down, let it off the jack, check for fender clearance. If all thats ok, mount the others up, check rears for clearance, and drive.

I'm not putting 2006 rims on an older car. I upgraded to 2008 Impreza. I found this: http://www.cars101.com/subaru/tiresa...s.html#impreza
It seems like both the 2006 and 2008 2.5i use the same tire and rims although I don't quite follow what P.C.D 100 (3.94) means:
2.5i- 16x6.5jj, offset 55 (2.17), P.C.D 100 (3.94), alloy
I'll just ask the dealer when I pick up the new car.

Yes, remove one of your wheels. Look at the inside of the wheel, on one of the spokes. There should be, cast into the wheel, the bolt pattern and offset.

For example, on the 2006 WRX it says 5 x 100 and then 55 -- the offset.

Find yours, and then go wheel hunting.

Have fun!

The 16" steelie listed on TireRack for the '08 Impreza looks to be the same one listed for the 06-07 Impreza, which means it's got a 50mm offset and it should fit the '08.
