I don't know about the weight difference, but the bolt pattern on the SVX is larger than the Impreza and Legacy.

I think the wheels are 16 x 7.5 - might want to doublecheck that though. That's off the top of my head.

So I figure the wheels for it are wider than the RS 16x7s then eh? Do you know the weight?

No idea on the weight. Never looked into it. But will try to find you an answer.

The wheels have been weighed by a few owners. They all say that they weigh just under 20 lbs without a tire.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that most 225mm wide tires are mounted on 7 inch wide wheels. Since SVXes come with 7.5 inch wide wheels, we could easily mount wider tires like 235's and 245's. This would increase contact patch, and help traction and handling. Just make sure you get the aspect ratio right to keep the diameter close to stock(235/50, 235/45, 245/45, 245/40). Those sizes might be tough to find for a 16 inch rim, but someone should have them for sale.

Also 1997 SVXes came with 215mm wide tires on the same sized rims(7.5in), so you can go slightly narrower too (for snow tires 215/55).

Hope this helps,
Eric
