    For a low budget winter wheel option on 2015 cars this one looks to be a decent choice. Thoughts?
    Im looking for wheels for winter tires to commute, those are if your bent a rim and needed to replace, Im looking to have the ones I buy for the life of my financing of the car (fingers crossed/knock on wood) haha

    I just found that the offset is between 35mm and 45 mm....Before I buy any rim from a 3rd party source I should be sure that the wheel falls between that offset correct? What is the stock rims OFFSET out of the showroom does anyone know?? I dont want to mess with suspension etc...Whats a safe number to buy wheels at for the offset?

    if anyone had that question I found out that its the matter of millimeters and It will not make a difference as long as you keep it between 35-45

    As for wheels (17 x 7.5), any reccomendations on where i can find them used for the 2015 Wrx?
    I have used Bridgestone blizzard on my forester and my BMW 530i. Even the rwd Bimmerh went well in Maine winters with those. I will get another set for my 2015 wrx 6mt ltd. wheels.. Check tire rack.. Depends how fussy and deep your checkbook is.

    Stock OEM offset is +55... Someone stated before, Google should be your friend.

    yes your right thank you....so only difference I will have in the wheels I buy is to try and find 7 in or 7.5 width 17s.....if I buy any of the three widths, (7, 7.5, 8) Wil 235 45 17s be appropriate winter tire size? Or should I consider another size?

    WS is great for winter performance. The LMs might give you a little less, but are better wet and dry performance. I have the X-Ice3 but haven't gotten to try them out in really bad weather. They are good in the dry and great in the slush.

    I used Dunlop Winter Maxx this past winter on my '14 and they were great. Would recommend them to anybody here.

    I have a set of winter wheels/tires from my mustang I will no longer be using. I Know the wheel themselves will fit (17x7.5 45offset), but the tires are 235x55x17. Will the 55 profile be too tall and rub?

    I've bought 225/45/17 Conti WinterContact to replace summer tires on stock rims for the winter season... Expected to be good alternate size. But the first service I tried, refused to put those on "this tires are shorter while Subaru tires are very tight", "liability" and such and such... let's see how it goes with the other one.

    The other service sounded like a sophisticated sales-person "we can put those on, but according to your owners manual tires size that is different than on the plate - could cause damage to your transmission... we aren't trying to sell you another set, but you still can return those." ... and buy a new set from us, of course ))

    Still sounds like a BS... The main thing is tires have to be equal in terms of characteristics and wear, right? I don't think the one could find a lot of WRX sticked to the original tire size Please correct me if I'm wrong. It is my first AWD.

    Stock on a 17x8 wheel is +55. You should be okay in the +45 to +55 range, with caveats.

    Changing the diameter can for sure add strain on the drivetrain, but I couldn't tell you how significant that size would be. Those choosing to run a more narrow tire in winter might go to 215/50/17 as it is closer to stock.

    there are opinions that not all the 215/50/17 tires will fit the stock wheel...

    Im running 225/50/17 Hankook W419 on 17x8.25 +35 xxr 530


    no rubbing or issues at all.

    225/45/17 should be fine, it's about 1.4% smaller then stock size which is in safe zone for differences in sizes.
