Hey guys.. Wanted to add to this post since I did use it to find out what other factory wheels will fit my sister's 2002 forester.
But I couldn't really find if the 2018/2019 Crosstrek premium wheels fit or not..
She originally had 15x6.5 (+45ish?) Subaru HUBCAPS with 205/70/15.. Beat tires and just ugly.
And the Crosstrek wheels/tires are 18x7.5 +55 with 225/55/18.. I took a chance if they would fit or not and just purchased from someone locally..
But luckily.. They fit.. No spacers.. Only thing I needed to do was shave off a tiny edge of the front lower control arm bushing bracket with an angle grinder.
The tears were very very close.. Within a credit card clearance!..but it is a static part that came that close.. So if it doesn't touch.. It won't.
I tested it out by driving up to ~75mph..doing fast circles.. Hitting bumps..reverse etc..
I will probably get some decent spacers for the rear to make them sit flush.. But these were pretty much bolt on! Cleared everything Lock-to-Lock. Very close.. But it all works out perfectly.
Honestly.. I thought they were pretty ugly at first.. But once they were mounted on the car.. They look to be aftermarket wheels and look great!
Wanted as much sidewall as possible.. And yes the OD is slightly larger with the new setup.. And making the speedo read about 3mph slower.. But it's fine
Vehicle: 2002 Forester
Wheels are from :
2018/2019 Subaru Crosstrek Premium
Hub and bore: 5x100, 56.1mm bore
Tires: 225/55/18 Falken Zeix.
-Slight trim on lower control arm bracket edge.. Basically just chamfer off the sharp corner.. It does not effect anything structural or safety wise.
Other than that.. Bolt ON.
hopefully I can get these pics uploaded
Hope this can help someone else.
