...HATE the Crosstrek wheels? On the same note, does anyone know the wheel size/offset/etc (I'm not good with wheel sizing...) I want to see what's available so I can switch my wheels out ASAP lol...

I actually really, really like the wheels. They are a bit funky but I think it adds a lot to the character of the Crosstrek. To each their own, though.

I am guessing the wheels will be pretty standard so you can start looking around on Tirerack.com or something at Impreza wheels and get a good idea of what will be available for the Crosstrek.

I personally LIKE the wheels on the XV, I mean it makes a BOLD statement.
Some wheels I will make this vehicle look SILLY, heck I have RPF01 and if
I put those on the XV it will look SILLY.

But to the guy who ordered an ORANGE XV there are a set of SPARCO Assato Garras which comes in
you guess it " ORANGE " so you orange XV folks out there can even color coordinate.

This is an older thread, I know, but I just got here and just got my Crosstrek last week. I absolutely love the wheels. They were the first thing that jumped out at me and I wouldn't change them. They indeed make a bold statement and coupled with the Tangerine Orange color, it's exactly what I was looking for. But I like a flashy car that's easy to spot in the parking lot. ;D

I'm still very on the fence about the. They are 17x7 et48 (5x100 and 56.1mm hub bore) by the way so there are a lot of good wheel options out there to replace them with.

When we 1st starting looking I DID NOT like the wheels BBBUUTT I love them now! They grew on me :)
I was the same way, actually about more than just the wheels. Then I kept reading more and more about the Crosstrek and everything grew on me.

I think we will start seeing some people doing great things with aftermarket wheels so I am excited to see how other options look on the Crosstrek.

Personally I love the look of the wheels. They stand out without being ridiculous. When I was considering the XV initially, I showed a few friends and the first comment they all made was about the wheels (in a positive way).

At this point I'm leaning toward Team Dynamics Pro Rally wheel in white with a 225/70R15 tire!

Definitely a matching choice of wheel but...

Can the XV even run 15 inch wheels? I know that the front brakes are very likely WRX brakes, which as far as I know, can only clear 16 inch wheels...

Gravel wheels are designed differently from tarmac wheels for higher brake clearance. The Team Dynamics Pro Rally wheel will clear the Subaru 4-pot brakes so it should have zero issue clearing these, I do have access to a set to test fit so I'll confirm that for everyone here once I give them a try.
My other option is probably the Team Dynamics Pro Race in a 17in also in white.

Please, please, please do this and post some pictures if you can! I am very interested in seeing how 15" look and fit on the Crosstrek.
