        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.

                          Hi,Michael,A fitable offset is not must a certain data,it is a interval.If the ome offset is 48mm,the fitable offset interval is 43-53mm.The tolerance is +_5mm

                                it uses rim 16" and tire 235/ 60/16, but I would like to rise the forester .
                                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.

                                    Found a set really cheap in black and they would make the car look so much better but don't want to waste money if they're not suitable for the car.
