After doing some online window-shopping, I have come to the realization that steel wheels that are designed for Subaru's vehicles can be difficult to find.

I figured that the easiest way to find closest-to-OEM offset and size would be to... look at other Subaru OEM wheels from various Subaru Forester generations.

Here I have compiled a list for those concerned with proper steel wheel fitment and especially those looking to find wheels that don't outsource to the People's Republic of China. USA-made wheels for our application seems to be pretty much nonexistent, for those who are curious about options that don't outsource. For additional info regarding "safe bets" for outsourced products, the list of countries in the U.S. Trade Agreement Act is a nice starting point to consider.

NOTE: Subaru 15" steel wheels barely, but slightly, scrape the brake calipers. They may require modification to fit.

Hello,. New owner 21 premium 6 gear in the rust belt. I found your steel wheels cross list and hope to mount winter tread. Any updates on fit issues that you or others may have will help. If not Subaru, USA, free trade OK.
Thanks,. shifty6t

Not OEM but nice 48 mm rims are only a 1/4 inch larger per side and they fit within the wheel wells.

The invoice says

K132000 (X44757)
Steel Wheel 17x7.0 5x100mm +48 56.1mm SIL(EUROPEAN MADE)

Thanks very much, I've bounced around the net trying to find the right fit, hopefully before the next ice age arrival.
Hearing good things about the wild peak A/T Falken tires also. Lots of choices in tires
Suffering from logic and common sense points me to OEM parts, until..........
Thanks again.
