Koya SF01's in 18x9 +42 F and +36 R
or
Rota P1R's in 18x9.5 +38 all round...

Does anyone have any advice apart from use stretched tyres, run camber and roll my guards?


I think you'll need to do all 3 things to get either wheel to fit properly. Out of those 2 wheels choices I will biasly pick the Koya's. :mrgreen:

I'll definitely need to roll my rear guards and trim back my front guards (if they need doing)

I've got whiteline camber bolts for the front waiting there for me, and rear camber bushes too...
I'll be running 225/40/18's all round.

At this stage, I am swaying more to the Rota P1R's, because I like the idea of having a bit of lip, and if I get them in black, I think it will look pretty tough.

And the challenge of getting them to fit somewhat reasonably under the guards is appealing to me too.

Plus, the Rota's are $80 a rim cheaper

That's fine, you cant go wrong with either choice. Rota's were my next choice for me at the time too. Keen to see the finished outcome.

So was looking at wheels last couple of days and noticed the Works GT5; http://www.gt5.com.au/

According to their data sheet, looks as though they should fit a Liberty ok; http://www.jdmconcept.com.au/pdf/jdm-concept-gt5-set

Has anyone picked up a set of these? Plenty of pics of them on the shop page, including a couple of Subarus, but no Gen4s; http://www.jdmconcept.com.au/part/work/ ... pt-gt5-set

Tempted to pickup a Bronze set for mine...

Awesome thread this.
Helped a bunch with the wheel shopping so thanks to the massive number of contributors!

Ended up with the Roya Gravel 18x8.5 hyper black.
Look much better in person than in online pics!
On a 04 GT wagon in Atlantic Blue.
Running 225*40R18 Potenza RE003 with a notable amount of stretch.
(Not dubs stretch though!)
Standard height at the moment and no scraping or rubbing at all.
2000km road trip coming up will test that.

Will post up pics when I get a chance.
