Default 18's with 245's on subaru

ok i guess some of you said it wouldn't be wise to put 245 on the outback but they fit. just put them on today with the riced out 18's (at least thats what some of you call them.. it is a japanese car ya know ) anyways they did fit... 245/45-28's no rubbing, ride feels totally the same but handles a bit better because of the low profiles.... but then again its an outback. height is only of .1 form stock height on the tire.

so maybe if anyone out there every desides wants to put 245 in any series (of course resonably) they will fit all the way around.

below is link to car with the wheels

- just put www. in front of it and it should work... looks like this board got some bug on it so that you can post that way. -

Looks nice! I seriously doubt that they'll still fit if you were ever to lower the car though. Also, be careful with adding more grip to an Outback, you don't want to roll it like a local NASIOCer did here.

yeah the back is really close if you would lower it.. however the front i sure would clear. i think the rear would work if you pounded in the fender well near the strut because thats the only place i could see that would hit.

yeah and grip i do need to be careful... i was going to get the cusco rear sway bar and also endlinks for front and rear to get it to handle just a bit better... but yeah with the AWD it's tricky on knowing when the cars gonna let loose not to meantion the height of the outback.

i'd like to know what happened to the one who rolled theirs... is there a post?

Maverick,
Looks great! What are the specs on the wheels (manufacturer/model/offset,etc)???

I have 235s on my car, and there is no rubbing even with the near 1.5" drop! Of course, the skinny stock wheels probably keep the tire from realizing it's full width potential!

There wasn't a thread posted, but basically the car fishtailed one way, he overcorrected, the car fishtailed the other way, and when it hooked up it rolled over. Luckily the driver and his passenger walked away without any major injuries, but the car was totalled.

Maverick,
Looks very nice.

I have 235/50 17" on my Outback H6. These are 7 spoke and look similar to the 6 spokes you have on yours, but in champagne color. The offset is 45 instead of the original 48. Looks brilliant with the pearl white of the car.

The handling is much better and quieter as the Yokohama originals were rather noisy. Best upgrade to date, but I may sell my current Outback H6 as I've seen the new Outback H6. Look at my post regarding the Outback at the Sydney motor show in this Outback forum.

the offset i'm running is a 43 which works fine. as far as the handling you are right it makes big differance.. more of a differance then an intake . i love to see pics of your car!

btw the new outback looks very nice.. however gonna stick with what i got and save me some money for the new GTO (your verson of a Holden Monaro) 360 horses rear wheel drive.. sorry all you STI lovers but i'm gonna ahve to stick with this baby. and of coruse keep my outback.

Ah, nice to see a learned American friend who knows about our Holden's and the Monaro in particular, even if it does use a Yankie V8 to do the job. Some of these V8's here are factory made to 300+kw or 400hp!

Looks like some of our Aussie cars are making an impact in the States. There is talk of our Ford Falcon BA version V8 or turbo 6 also going to the US as police cars. These are also very good cars and the BA Falcon won the Wheels car magazine car of the year award here. A very coveted trophy and recognized the world over. The turbo 6 is rated at 240kw or 320hp. This apparently is a real hoot to drive and handles very well too. All for about US$31,500 and they look great.

Love the holden commodore for years. Now we are getting the crappy looking GTO someday we'll get a nice commodore though.
