I'd like to see the 15" information as I have a 99 Forester L. I just put on some 225/60-15 tires on it and it looks pretty good. There isn't much clearance to the strut though so I wouldn't want an offset that brings the tire closer to the strut.

These are the wheels Rommel is running and which the new USDM 08’ Foresters were modeled after. Also Brembo clearing

Okay, just an update. My bathroom scale has always been pretty darn accurate.

I stepped on by myself: 180lbs

I stepped on holding (1) '08 STi FXST wheel w/ stock G900 tire mounted: 221lbs

So 41lbs is the total.

Here is a comparison. According to scoobymods, the lightweight stock '04 FXT 16 alloy wheels are 19lbs and the lightweight Geos that came on them were 19.6lbs...making a grand total of 38.6lbs.

I just threw on my 17" Gunmetal T2s that are 18lbs for the wheel and Pirelli PZero Nero M+S tire is 28 lbs (as quoted by tirerack)...for a grand total of 46lbs.

Okay, I just checked tirerack and it said that the 215/55/17 G900 tire weighs 26lbs. So that means the wheels weigh 15lbs each.

Don't you mean 41 lbs for the combo?
