Hi guys, Im a lucky owner of a wine red 2002 Forester, St/b and would like to know what size of wheels I can put on this monster to best provide performance. It came with 17 inch low profiles but some people are advising against them due to consumption. I still dig the 17 inch but can go lower to 16s. What to do? Best size to look for?

Welcome to the forum from Niagara Falls!
Depending on the weight of the wheels, there shouldn't be a change in fuel consumption. If their lighter, it could actually improve fuel consumption as well as acceleration. The only drawback to the 17's is that the tires cost slightly more than 16's...

Post up some pictures when you can!
