Default WRX Wheel on 2000 Outback & hubcaps

Will a WRX wheel fit on a 2000 OBS? I know the bearings are different but I would think the bolt pattern and offset would work.

I have had multiple hubcaps break and fall off the car. This may just be related to bad techs at Tire Kingdom. Has anyone else had similar problem?

I've had a similar problem with the hubcaps on my
my2001 OBS. the caps are just plain junk. If you
notice most OBS with caps are either missing them
all, or some of them. look at the other OBS you see when driving around.

From what I read in all the forums, you won't
have any problems with WRX wheels and your OBS.

The bolt pattern is the same 5x100 and the offset is stock Subaru so its ok.

And no more broken ugly hubcaps...

I'm probably going to do the same thing to
my car.

Yup, garbage, and not cheap to replace. I don't even bother putting mine on when I switch to winter tires on the stock steelies. btw, I have a set in decent shape.

Every OBS I've seen has no hubcaps, just black steel wheels. I thought they came that way
