Quick Question for Wheel/rim size 2010 LGT
 
As with a lot of people, I am preparing for winter for my newly acquired 2010 LGT. I am wondering if a 2007 OEM 17" 5 spoke rim from a 2007 LGT fit well on the 2010 LGT. I am guessing from reading other threads that the 17" will be paired with 225/50/17 tires?

Thanks in advance

Yes, the wheel will fit, and yes, the comparable tire size would be a 225-50/17

Or use the oem's for winter with some sweet Blizzaks and get some summer wheels for next year.

My OEMs are 18s and I would prefer to go 17s for winter.

Also, I tend to like OEM/stock rims for now.

This leads to another question as to a 2006 LGT 17 5 spoke. Are these the same as the 2007s? Will they fit nice?

For winter rubber, why not step down to the base 2.5i 16's? More sidewall could be a good thing in the winter for ya... And tires are cheaper to boot.

I have read and correct me if I'm wrong that the 2010+ Legacy GT requires the 17" to clear the brakes and 16" won't fit.

I believe I read that too (though I'm also not sure myself).

I know, helpful post, right?

The 4th gen LGT 17" wheels do fit the 5th gen no problem, but the offset is totally wrong. It will look extremely sank in. I know because I tested them on my 2013. You will need about a 25mm spacer to make it look proper.

16s will not fit because of front calipers.

5th gen are 18x7.5 +55mm offset and way sunk in. 4th gen LGT rims are 17x7 +55mm offset and way sunk in.

Now, listen up. 3.6R rims are 17x7.5 and are +48 offset; not as sunk in...


Tire rack now has 17" steelies.

Is this what you want to do?

Yes it works, no issues.

How sunk in is it? What is the offset? Is it from a 2007? Is there a difference in OEM between a 2007 and 2006?

I ask as I am looking at rims that are currently on sale locally.

Questions, questions :eek:

I dont know what the offset is. I do not think they are bad, IMO it does not look sunk it. If it is I dont think by much maybe even a good thing to keep the grime off the car.

The pic is from last year and I dont have them on this year yet.
