Default Wheel Question

How wide are the Baja Turbo wheels? I ended up with a set on my FXT and would like to know if they are 6.5 or 7" wide...

also, what kind of tires are on them... all I know is they are bridgestones...

Thanks
Rob

Thanks a bunch...

I would assume they are 7", since there are 225s on there... what kind of tire is that... all I see it that it's a bridgestone potenza... but I think they are better than the geolanders that come on the FXT...

according to that dealier they make them for OEM's like subaru for OEM sales only. So the outbacks had them for a long time and so the baja ot them as well.

funny thing is they don't feel nearly as bad as the Impreza RE92s... maybe it's because we inherently expect the forester would handle worse...

My dealer was wrong, the wheels are 6.5" wide with pots. I checked and the info is cast into the back side of the wheels.
