Default Pic Request: GC8 Outback Sport on 17s

Want to see any GC8 outback sport's on any 17in wheel. Preferrably rota, but any 17s are fine.

tyres are 215/45/17. 215 width should not rub on a GC/GM/GF/GG body unless there was some body damage. certain 225/45/17 don't rub. may people run 215/40/17, which is too small a profile for me an NY metro streets. the re040 tyre are a firm sidewall to boot.

Pre 2002 OBS are GM4 not GC8

Edit: Of course GF4, that'll teach me not to post when I really really need to get up and take a leak
