        17x7 ET 50 wheels on Subaru Forester 2013

        I have subaru forester 2013 which only fitted steel wheels. Base on your website, the actual alloy wheels for this car is 17x7 ET48. Is that okay if I fit cx5 wheels ( 17x7 ET 50) to my car. My main concern is the offset between those wheels.

                    Hi,4theluvof2,I suggest that you do not use the 16'' wheels,Because the stock wheel for forester is 17''

                      I don't know the exact tire size, but I do know the outback are 16" rims, and the forrester are 17" rims.
                      I'm assuming that going smaller will not be an issue, they are not any social or custom wide rims or anything like that so don't see that as a problem, more looking for confirmation is all
                      Was also wondering if the different size rims will cause damage to the all wheel drive as well
                      Thanks

                        Hi,Rich,If they are not any custom wheels,You also need to confirm the bolt pattern ,if the tolerance within 5mm,it can fit for.

                                the 17" rim 7J x 17 ET 48 fits good.

                                    Hi,Markos,I think 22'' is too large for your car.the stock rims size for your car is 17'',20'' is the largest size.

                                              I just bought a 2015 Forester with 17" tires and was wondering if my 2015 Outback 16" snow tires will fit.

                                                  My tire size is 225/60 R16 and the tires are mounted on 16" rims for the 2005 outback. The bolt pattern looks the same, however I am not sure if they will fit.

                                                          Just bought a 2017 Subaru Forester with 17" alloy wheels. I have the 16" steel rims with mounted snows from our 2006 Forester. Will these fit the new vehicle (bolt pattern/offset/caliper clearance)? Will the working diameter of the tire be similar?
