HI im looking at some 18inch wheels that came off of Subaru gc8 WRX. Would they fit on my 2001 Subaru b4 LIberty?

 

Is it the same P.C.D and would the offset be ok?

 

Thanks

Cant even beging to help without knowing what the pcd and offset are...

Are they 18x10 +0. Does the gc8 have a 114.3 conversion. Does your b4 have a 114.3 conversion (unlikely but who knows)

Need more info

He should be find with the 18s on the B4. If you not sure ask to try them on and see if they fit

Hi I just bought some 07 odd liberty b-spec 18's for my gen2, which I believe is much the same underneath as a B4. I had 215 45 r17's before and the new tyres are 215 18 r45's, so the overall diameter is about one inch larger. They fit the guards but rub on the spring cup of the strut on the rear quite hard (only on one side). I masaged the spring cup with a hammer so they would fit, went for a drive and promptly caught and ripped out the lip of the front left guard. So I would say maybe try before you buy. My plan is to fit some 205 40 r18 tyres, which off a tyre fitment calculator should be the same size as the 17's I have now but a little narrower. Also of note my new rims are +55 offset where the old aftermarket 17's I had were +48, hence the spring cup rub.

I was told all subaru wheels fit all subarus- this is not 100% true i have found.
