When you desire a sporty and aggressive outlook for your Legacy, when your brake caliper interferes the wheel, when you alter the wheel offset to obtain a better fitment, or when you transfer your wheel bolt pattern, Subaru Legacy wheel spacers are what you need. But when it comes to the size selection, it goes confused.
How to measure the size of Subaru Legacy wheel spacers
Here are some instructions and diagrams on how to measure the wheel gap and the bolt pattern of your Subaru Legacy:
- Wheel gap is the distance between the top of the tire and the bottom of the fender. To measure it, you need a ruler or a tape measure and a level surface. Park your car on a level surface and make sure the tires are properly inflated. Then, measure the distance from the top of the tire to the bottom of the fender on each wheel. You can use a piece of cardboard or paper to mark the points where you measure. The wheel gap may vary depending on the suspension, tire size and load of the car.
- Bolt pattern is the arrangement of the lug holes on the wheel hub. It is usually expressed as a number of lug holes followed by a slash and a diameter of a circle that passes through the center of each lug hole. For example, 5×100 means five lug holes on a 100 mm circle. To measure it, you need a ruler or a caliper and a piece of paper. First, count the number of lug holes on your wheel hub. Then, measure the distance from the center of one lug hole to the center of another lug hole that is directly across from it. This is the diameter of the bolt circle. You can also use a piece of paper to trace the outline of the lug holes and measure it later.
- Subaru Legacy has different wheel sizes, PCDs and offsets for different model years and trim levels. You can check your car’s manual or look for a sticker on the driver’s side door jamb to find out your specific wheel specifications. Alternatively, you can use this table to find out some common wheel specifications for Subaru Legacy:
|Model Year||Trim Level||Wheel Size||PCD||Offset|
Generally, 2016-2023 Subaru Legacy is 5×114.3 PCD and 56.1 CB, and the thickness range is 18mm to 25mm but capable to alter depending on your preference as well as the offset and clearance of your car.
