Question Tire / Wheel sizes for the Legacy

Okay. We're all versed in the difficulties in getting properly sized wheels on the Impreza. And, have heard often that "rolling the fenders" could be a cure for them. What of the Legacy? Are we as limited in wheel sizes as the Impreza? Can we use a +45mm offset wheel more readily than those Impreza punks?

I foster fantasies of going +1 with new wheels, but want to know in advance of any extra limitations.

Thumbs up

tsw.com has an application guide for their wheels for our cars. I think they have a 40mm off-set. I have 15x7 Revos on my car and they fit fine. Hope it helps a little.

Unfortunatly all that holds true for the baby Imp also holds true for us Legacy folk, Sorry :-( What you will notice with the wheels in the 40mm offset range is, as you stated, rubbing but you will also notice it in the steering. It will become heavy and the car will become a bit more darty and it will tend to follow groves in the road while pulling the steering wheel in your hands. Also note that wider lower profile tires will make your alignment more critical. After all of that let me say that I love my 17" Speedlines/PZero's on my '92 Legacy! Keep looking for the PROPER offset wheels, you won't be sorry!

I haven't noticed ANY of those problems, but my wheels might have spacers on them. All I noticed improved handling, tracking, and ride. But keep in mind I switched from 14" wheels with serious snow tires.
