2013 Subaru Tribeca Premium
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
Looking to buy a set of Tribeca wheels. Anyone have a set lying around after purchasing alloys.
I believe our wheels are 18 inch diameter x 8 inches wide with a 5x114 bolt pattern and a 45mm offset?I have a facelift car, but it's Touring trim level and I'd swear the wheels are identical to the pre-facelift wheels.
Mine looks identical to the red Tribeca on this page: 2010 Subaru Tribeca Research Site
One of the other Subaru forums (NASIOC?) has a pretty comprehensive listing of Subaru wheels, and it looked like some models of STI had matching specs for diameter and offset, and it seems like lots of STi guys like to put custom wheels on their cars....a year ago, it looked like there were several sets to choose from on Craigslist here in Seattle. I should probably grab a set while they're still relatively common...
Nope! It's stock for the Touring trim. I wonder if they had a stack of leftover wheels sitting in the factory or something, because I can't think of another case in automotive history of a manufacturer putting wheels from a previous edition on their top-of-the-line trim (I think the Touring model is the top trim level, right?) That link above (to cars101.com) is website by a guy named Joe Spitz who is (was?) a Subaru salesman here in Seattle for years, and you can see both a facelifted red car and a black one with "my" (aka B9 style) wheels. When each new model comes out, he does (did?) a great job of pointing out the differences over the previous year's model. It's a great resource if you're shopping for a used Subaru. But the red car in that link is almost exactly like mine -- matching (red) lower body panels, silver roof bars, puddle lights, and the old-style wheels. Mine also has the backup camera screen in the dashboard, not in the mirror. It does have the rear-passenger vents, but does not have the pull-down DVD player. I know -- it's an unusual variation on an already-unusual car.
