Default No aftermarket wheels?

Okay, so we all know that aftermarket wheels for our 4-lug Subies are REALLY hard to find. Tire Rack has nothing! About the only rims we can get besides Subaru rims are Pugs, which I personally don't like...

I'm considering getting some Borbet Type B 14's for my Leg, not for extreme autoX purposes, and 14's obviously aren't about bling , but just to clean up the look of the car a little. I would like it if the XT were to follow suit, but is there really no aftermarket wheel supplier for such an unusual hub design?

You can swap to the 5 lug pattern fairly easily- there are plenty of donor XT's in yards to get the parts from .

Are there really 8 lugs that fit??

Personally I got some 15 inch 6 lug rims that fit on toyota pickups and what you do to make em work is pop out 2 of the studs on the subaru hub, then install using 2 of the holes. you will have to drill out the other 2 holes in the rim using the hub as a jig. I cant wait to see how they look on the brat when its all lifted and painted

To use 6-bolts: take a rotor off and leave two (oposite sides) studs in, then fit it on the wheel and mark the wheel using the empty holes as a template. The use a drill press to drill the holes, anybody know the stud diameter?? and don't forget to add the angle (using a bigger bit) on the outside of the wheel.

BRATs use the same rims as other 4 lug subarus.... something like 4x140's I THINK... But they are the same as GL's and XT's and such.
