Does anyone know it the stock forester X rims (5 spoke steelies) will clear over the outback XT brakes?

Thanks!

AFAIK, the FXT and OBXT both have the same brakes. Only the LGT got bigger brakes.

So that's probably a yes! The 16 inch steelies fit on a forester XT so I should be good there.

Yep, if they clear the FXT brakes, they should clear the OBXT brakes.

I bought a set of OBXT brakes a couple years ago thinking they were bigger than the FXT brakes, but they were the same thing. I was comparing '04 FXT to '05 OBXT, but I don't think the brakes have changed.
