18x8 +35 wheels on GT-B wagon, will it fit?

Postby Ferdimage » Thu Jul 11, 2019 1:39 pm

Been a member for a long time, and just purchased my first Liberty GT-B.

I have a Forester GT with Brembo brakes and RPF-1 18x8 +35 rims with 235 45 18 tyres on them.

I really want to bolt up the Brembo's to the Liberty but need the RPF-1's to clear them.
Will the wheels fit my GT-B with stock suspension?

Also what is the stock GT-B wheels specs and tyres?

18 7 +55 iirc... for postfl GT-b, tbSTi enkeis are 7.5.

Tyre size is 225 45 r18 iirc.

Whack these specs into eg willtheyfit.com to compare to yours.

They will fit but you may need to roll the guards up and out a little.

I’m on 18 8.5 +35 with coilovers and rolling, stock alignment: they poke a little, yours might be flush.

Like me you could get away with 235 40 18 with a 9% speedo correction factor.

Because of the +35 poke inner clearance is dead similar to stock rims/struts.

For the 18x7 +55 GT-B rim, the stock tyre is a 215/45-18 ☺

Awsome thanks for the help guys, I'll chuck them on the weekend and see how they clear the guards.
