A table of suggested tire/wheel sizes for the Subaru Impreza, and a list of factory Subaru wheels which will fit it.

The chart was lifted from which also has information (cobbled from forums) about what brands of wheel are available, and for how much. The information may be dated, whereas this one is not, if only because it does not provide transient information.

Subaru Upgradage

A little while back I got an intake off ebay, with the description "93-01 IMPREZA BAJA LEGACY FORESTER AIR INTAKE W/FILTER".
