On the other board they are crazy about the Peugeot Wheels that fits in the Soob with 14" tires.
I'm searching for a manufacturer(Centerline preferably) that makes one for older Soobs or maybe can just sell me ones with no holes.

Re: Late respond

maybe stockton wheels can make custom centers, they make custom everything else. they would probably have to be steel though. it would be nice to be able to get a 14 or 15 inch rim under there.

Hey there Tom,
I'm not crazy about the larger wheels for Subarus. Taller tires just make them more underpower lika slug[mad]
It's not a good sight at all to see a baby stroller pass by me on the street while shifting into 2nd gear[smile]
The Aussies are lifting most of their Soobs and stuffing 14" tires. Unless somebody could come up with some aftermarket gears (which I'm sure it won't
happen) maybe I'll try taller tires.
I never took my Subarus in any serious off-roading trek but I did a lot with my 72 Int. Scout in Alaska with the escort of my brother's 78 Bronco equipt with a winch. Seeing the nature and off-roading, Alaska is one of the best.

Re: Late respond

yeah i know what you mean, i was just thinking you could get some real tires and a little more ground clearance if you had at least 14's. EVERYBODY that i have talked to that has been to alaska absolutly loves it. it seems a little cold for me,but i bet it is beautiful!
