Originally Forester has 5 nuts to fasten the wheel and their size is 12mm*1.25". Subaru recommends to install only original parts to Forester including rims and tires. The nuts are placed at diameter of 100mm and the central bore has size of 56.1mm. Choosing which rubber to purchase for Subaru Forester remember the size at 215/60 R16 215/65 R16 225/55 R17. Make sure the offset of new rims for 2.0 X is equal to 48mm. In production the vehicle was completed with rims 6.5" wide and with diameter of 16".

  • Stable ride is also proven by 7" wheel width and 48mm of offset which work well together in 2.5 XT

  • By the wheels of 16" diameter Subaru Forester feels great on the road.

  • Thought-out offset at 48mm and especially 6.5" wheel width create more firm factors.

  • It’s not only comfort of 17" which is important for Subaru Forester, it’s also great design.

  • You won’t decide to change 17" wheels made by Subaru unless you try to change Forester appearance.

  • One can’t imagine Subaru Forester with other but 16" diameter of rims.

Overcoming original 16" of wheels you grow engine load of 2.0 X and spend more fuel. Your new rim for Forester must be adjusted with 5 nuts and have 56.1mm central hole diameter. To install other than 48mm offset rims or different from 12mm*1.25" size of nuts, contact the service. Better buy 17" and original wheels for Subaru 2.5 XT to ensure safe ride.
