Subaru Stars 17" Legacy GT-B Wagon UKDM Wheels on Bugeye

Found these wheels last year for an unbelievable price and have been sitting waiting to get tires. As confirmed by ReubenH, they only came on '96-'98 Legacy GT-B's, RS-B's, and TSR-B's (Bilstein editions) offered almost everywhere else but USA :P. They're 17" and I bought some Kuhmo Ecsta SPT's in 215/45/17 to go with them. Now I need even more suspension upgrades

Tell me what you think? Car is dirty so please excuse...

Yeah, car looked fine with stock wheels, but after one size bigger, it made the gap alot more pronounced.

I really like the color of them, kinda greyish, bronzish, goldish.

Has anyone else seen these wheels before?

I know ReubenH has the Legacy Wagon these type of wheels originally came from... maybe he can confirm the years?

Agreed. They look great though!


Hows having a cut up plate? Is it really worth getting pulled over all the time by the stupid WASP

I had them on my GT-B. They are from 1996-1998 GTs and GT-Bs.

I don't really like the 'roundy features' of them crashing with the sharp lines of the fenders. Looks a little off for some reason. White bug-eyes are my fav tho, nice car!

It's somewhere in the middle. Not bad, not great... I guess they are OK. I would definately rather see 06-07 WRX wheels than those.

Have you ever gotten in trouble with your front plate like that? I bent the plate on my old car and was ticketed for tampering with state property.

Positive and Negative, thanks for the comments guys!

They really don't look too rounded in person, the pictures are throwing them off a little...

All that matters is I like them
