Post Does anybody know the offset for 2.5GT rims?

I know the Impreza rims are +53mm (right?), but I'm not sure about the Legacy rims. For some reason, the heavier Legacy 2.5GT uses the exact same tires as the 2.5RS, but on a 16x6.5" rim vice the 16x7" rim.

I'm looking to buy some 15x7" or 15x7.5" rims to mount my Kumhos on, but I would like to have a good starting point to start calculating wheel offsets. Thanks for your help.

I'd heard that Legacy rims were 55mm offset but I have no evidence for that

LOL, I must be brain-dead. I had to read it a second time before I got it.

Well, I just called the Tire Rack (why didn't I think of that first?) and they confirmed that the stock 6.5" rims are +55mm offset. Well done, Paul, you win today's prize - a hearty pat on the back.

Question

Is it possible to fit 18" rims on the Legacy? I have a MY00 and am curious to know if they would fit. If so, what width(7-8.5?) and offset? The only ones I have found so far are Team Dynamics Motorsport in 18x7-8.5 with a 45 and 50 offset. If I am being stupid thinking this is possible, be gentle on me. Thanks for your help.
