Default Will tire size and bolt pattern be same for 05?

I intend on acquiring a 2005 OBW when they arrive in Canada, presumably in the spring, and wonder if I can still use my 225/60-16s mounted snows? Will tire size and bolt pattern be the same for the 05 OBW.

Yes. I have the new spec Outback 3.0R H6 which is already available here in Oz. The 2.5i rims/tyres are 16" 215/60 (the US always had 225/60 for some reason) and the H6 has 17" with 215/55. If it follows the previous spec (your current spec) then you should get the 225/60 16" for the 2.5i and a rim tyre combo of 17" possibly 225/55 for the H6 I suspect.

The bolt pattern and offset is also the same as for the previous (your current spec) Outbacks which is 5 x 100 pcd with an offset of 48mm.

Yes, the reason I say this is becasue the 03' and 04 OBW bolt pattern are different so I would imagine so on the 05'.

Default Why would they do that?

Does the last poster have more specific information.

Why would they change the bolt pattern in a carry-over model? Makes no sense whatsoever!

That looks like a typo. He answered "Yes". The only questions I see are the inquiries about whether the bolt pattern is the same and if the 225/60-16 size will fit. That would indicate that he meant to say the 03 and 04 bolt patterns are not different. I wouldn't think they'd be different either.

As I stated, the bolt pattern and offset are exactly the same as the previous model (your current model). The new model is available NOW here in Australia and my Outback 3.0R has the same 5 x 100pcd and 48mm offset as the previous model.
