Eyeing up a set of these for a winter setup:

OEM 2010 - 2014 Subaru Outback rims. Specs: Size: 17" Bolt Pattern: 5x100 48 Offset 7Jx17. They seem like they should fit no problem, just wondering as i didn't seem them listed on the first page if anyone else has run this combo before. Looking to run 225/65/R17 winter tires if possible. I know they should be 225/60/R17, but looking for a little more cushion for the winter. These would be mounted on a 2016 Forester XT, stock suspension. Thoughts or comments please...

Hard to find. But I’m not so sure those specs are right - I believe these are 18x7.5 and offset is +55?

Look like JDM Impreza Spec C wheels to me

Can @Kevin or one of the other mods fix the first post please, as the pics aren't showing where they are supposed to be. - Thanks :)

@TMX I think the pics are there but at the bottom of the post?

As to the non-displayable links these are still referencing the old VB site and the site owners are "supposed" to be working on a solution.

This is an example of a hidden link from that post:

I run these as winter wheels on my '14 FXT, fits as stock basically no issues. Def lighter than stock XT wheels.

I see a set of legacy rims on Craigslist.
Size 17x7 inch,
Bolt Pattern: 5x114.3 mm,
Offset: 55 mm
Any risk in pulling the trigger on these for my 2019 forester. This is for winters. Was thinking of running 215 tires. Not sure if I need spacers or not.

You can safely run 3 mm spacers on the stock lugs if you were to need them. These are among the best available.
Avoid the cheap universal ones.

You will need spacers. WIth OEM of ET48 an ET55 with 3 mm spacers will, at ET52 equivalent, still move your wheel 4mm closer to the spring perch in the front. I'm running ET50 with 21575R15 and wouldn't want the tire any closer to the perch.

I thought I would be ok or close to ok with the downsized tires from 225 to 215. That should save 5mm plus if required 3mm spacers would make the total 8mm.

The thing is tires size vary by manufacturer. The listed sizes are often different in the real world. I've seen 235's that were in the real world were wider than 245's and seen the opposite. My gut feeling is you should be fine with 215's. and spacers.

Are these mounted on a Forester in this photo? Do you have pics?
As stated in the post, they do fit SH '09-'13 Forester XT.
I will have them on my '09 Forester XT once I am done with the engine swap project I am doing. I test fitted them with 225/45/17 Tires and they fit perfectly.
