19in wheel width & Tire size?
Planning to preorder a set of 19" wheels for my next Legacy.

Thinking about 19x8.5, not sure on the offset nor the tire size

what do you guys think? Planning to lower the car to 1 finger all around with coils

thanks for your help!

I think you can get away with at the most a +48 offset..who knows maybe more...someone please chime in. You can also search for pics of Deltasniper's ride or give him a PM. He's got 19x8.5 +48 with 245/40/19 on coils (i think).

I'm running this with a 15mm spacer in the front and a 25mm spacer in the back but my fenders are rolled and pulled.

Tire - 245/40-19
Rim - 19x8 +45mm

that sounds extremely interesting. can you link me to some pictures?

i'm even considering upping the size to 20"

20" tires are a lot cheaper comparing to 19"

i'm running 19x8 et35 lowered on eibachs 1" f and b. tires are 225/40/19 and not even close to rubbing. you should be fine..

I figured there's a lot more room to work with than gen4. But I'd like to see some examples of how low it can go and how meaty the tires can be, like say 19x8.5 with 235 or 245 series tires
depending how low the car will be, i want 40 or 45 side profile

So you're finally gonna join us in the 5th gen section huh? ;)

Hanger 07-06-2012 11:53 AM

seriously considering it. just need to find out if i can afford paying for a new car. if i can, then it's a go!

GT this time?

Hanger 07-06-2012 12:42 PM

they killed the GT line with the 2013 sadly. Otherwise I'd really love to have one this time

Can always look for a 2010-2012 LGT. Unless you want to buy new of course.

Hanger 07-06-2012 06:47 PM

yep, and i liked the new front end. looked into swapping to JDM with pre-2013. turned out to be nearly impossible and money pit :eek:

figured i can live with the stock front end of the '13

Billy Dagwood 07-06-2012 06:51 PM

what if you got a 2010-2012 gt and swapped on the 2013 front end?

(for what it's worth, I agree with you...the 2013 front end is far better looking to my eye than the earlier 5th gens)

Hanger 07-06-2012 09:36 PM

lol that make it a little bit more possible but not looking to put that much effort with the next car.
