I don't see any steel options for you at this point. We do have some inexpensive aftermarket options though. Home - Discount Tire Direct enter your vehicle to browse wheels that fit.

I am checking to see if we can mail order this tire. PM me your email address and your shipping address and I will have one of our Salesman email you a quote. Thank you for the oppurtunity at your business.

Edit: We are unable to mail order the Nokian brand. We do carry some great alternatives.

I've also looked into dedicated wheels and tires for winter, but i want to go with 16" steelies for winter use. There are no wheel options for any 2009 subaru on discount tire direct...

Anyone know what a set of 16" steelies go for?

Is the bolt pattern the same as the previous models, 5 x 100?

Sorry I can't tell you more about the 09 yet. Our technical guys haven't got their hands on one yet. I don't show any specs in my system yet for it.

I paid $50 per wheel, but that was at Tirerack. Beware though - they sold me wheels with 50mm ofsset vs 48 mm. Didn't seem to make any difference on the OBW, not sure about the Forester.

Don't forget - unless you want to look at the TPMS light all winter you'll need a new set of sensors, (or some black electrical tape to cover the light)

If you want some snow wheels, go for some used 16" OEM wheels. The 02/03 WRX wheels are only 16 lbs and sell for $150 a set. They make great snow wheels adn look much better than a steel wheel. The steel wheels also rust easy and weight about 24lbs each.

Good to know! I thought about getting some OEM subaru wheels but i wasn't sure if the bolt pattern was the same on other models. I'll be on the look out for some 16" oem wheels...

I have requested additional information on this vehicle for you guys. Maybe it will help move it up in the priority list of 09 vehicles our technical department is working on. I will let you know what information I receive. Thank you for your patience.
