Default are struts on '11 Outback same as what's on an '11 Legacy

im trying to find out if 245/50/18 tires will fit an outback, but no one will answer me. i know 18x8 wheels with +48 offset will fit. but i assume the struts are they same and people put tires that wide on a legacy. so like the title states, are struts on an '11 outback the same as the ones on an '11 legacy

That's a great question. I'm not 100% sure one the new models, but on the older Legacy vs. Outback suspensions the struts for the Outback were physically longer than the Legacy ones.

Could they be interchanged? I'm sure they probably could. It's just tough to say because it's such a new car, there isn't much knowledge out there yet.

well i've confirmed that size will fit so im no longer concerned if the struts are the same, now i just need $2400 to get black OZ ultraleggeras and 235/50/18 tires. i know i asked about 245s but the 235s are about as wide.
