  • Go to either www.tirerack.com, or www.tiretrend.com. You can put in your car, and it gives you the stardard OEM wheel size, or comparable options. A 15" would probably be in the 60's series.

    From what I have seen and read the Michelin X-ice seems to be good, as is the Revo. Nokian is a good choice, and Hankook, Kumho for lower cost yet good tires.

    I am looking myself.
  • Thanks bigbad. It comes up with a P225/45/17. I think this makes sense. Smaller rim larger tire. I don't know if that size tire fits on a 15" rim.

    That is a 17inch tire not 15 when they say one size smaller they mean a 15inch tire on a 15 inch rim.

    Cheers Pat.
  • You are right hondafriek. I got confused. I need a smaller rim with higher profile. Here is what the APA site says...
    "The owners of cars equipped with low profile tires should definitely consider switching to higher profile winter tires mounted on wheels of a smaller diameter. Low profile winter tires are less effective and tend to facilitate the accumulation of snow within the wheels. For more information on downsizing the wheels on your vehicle, check the section about minus one and minus two conversions in this guide."

    My Subaru manual says I should not change from the factory size so I better just find an exact fit winter rim and tires as per the door sticker.

    Yeah, the smaller rims might not clear the brake calipers.

  • Why is there no posts since 2006.
    I have a Justy,Impreza & a Legacy.That's how much I like
    Subaru's. 89 Justy is a little rusty but still running.
    Same with the 93 Impreza which has over 400,000km.
    Just bought a 90 Legacy,little rusty with 246,000km.
    U just can't kill the engines if U keep good Synthetic
    Oil in them.
  • Our dealer has sold a ton of cars to Canadian clients. They were saying they saved between $7,000 and $20,000 depending on the model. If you guys need any help getting a new subaru let me know...you can also check out my blog on Carspace. I'd love to help! :D
  • Hi
    I'm a new owner of a '91 Justy which has required some work to get rolling. I'm currently in need of a brake drum as mine is ruined. The car is a 4WD GL, standard trans. and the drum has a splined hub which slides onto the drive shaft. The center spacer and washer are missing as well.
  • Hi Karen,tried 2 of my Canadian Suppliers but have none on hand.None even listed on
    model search. Brake disc but no drums, I assume U tried the Dealers.What Province
    are U located in. I have one more source,trying to reach them by the wknd. Will get
    back to U. Have a Happy New Year. :cry: :cry:

    How come we cant get the legacy wagon - it looks awesome and way cooler than the outback?
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Because only 3 of us care.

    Don't look at me - we had an 02 Legacy wagon. We were the only ones.

    In the US, image is everything, and right now crossovers are hot, wagons are not.
  • Hi folks, can anyone tell me where the single hose fitting protruding from
    the bottom of my ECS canister connects to? I just discovered today that it
    has been disconnected but I can't seem to find where to recconnect it,any
    advice would be greatly appreciated,thanks.

    Wow, that's pretty specific. Not a whole lot of Subaru Crew members here still own Loyales. My cousin had one but sold it in 2004.

    Here's a suggestion from left field - search for the part on-line, then look to see if there are any images that might show where it should go.
