Question 15" Winter Wheels

Is there enough clearance for the brakes using 15" Steel Winter Wheels for a 2008 Impreza? Is there anything else that will be affected using 15" Wheels?

Some tire websites sugguest it OK, but the people at Subaru says "NO".

This is my first Subaru and it just broke 1200 miles and I'm waiting to get some winter tires so I can go to Skiing!

Thanks

Bernie

I don't know about steels but I got a wheel/tire package from TireRack and went with 15" that were recomended on the web site. I called to make sure they had been tested and they said yes so I got them. They fit and clear nicely. I only paid a little over $500 for the whole package so it might be something to consider.

Which steels are you considering?

Hey KingHardcor,

Thanks!

Since, Quebec introduce mandatory winter tires for all residents of Quebec
there is a shortage of all winter tires are sold out here in upper NY state/Ontario/Quebec (specifiacally 205 55R16 winter tires) . That's why I'm looking at 15" wheels now for any availablity.

This pass week I've seen too many cars in ditches while driving through 2 winter storms.

Have a Happy New Year's
