    wheel sizes

    Was just wondering, what sized wheels and tyres do the 505 GR, Sti and SRD Turbo have?

    I assume the Sti have the 390mm wheels? Do the GR/SR have standard sized steel wheels.

    thanks

    as standard the GR's and SR's have 14" steel wheels
    STI's had metrics up to a certain point(dave ?)
    GTI's had 15" alloys and TD's i think had both 14" and 15" depending on year model i think(dave ?)
    there are a few different alloys that were made to fit these cars
    early subarus had the same PCD and so did ford sprectron vans(those ones with the 10" dual rear wheel setup) not that that helps too many people
    there are some nice steel wheels that can be made up
    try clarks wheel service at greenacre in sydney for them(i think the bloke is still there)

    This is all I know about 505 wheel sizes:

    carby models (and NA diesels) up to about 1983/1984: 14"x5" steel wheels

    carby models from about 1983/1984 (with full plastic wheel covers): 14"x5.5" steel wheels

    turbo diesels up to about 1985: 390mmx150mm alloy wheels

    turbo diesels from about 1985: 15"x6" alloy wheels

    STIs: 390mmx150mm alloy wheels

    GTIs: 15"x6" alloy wheels
    (later GTi wagons have 15"x6" steel wheels)

    SLi's: 14"x5.5" steel wheels

    14"x5" alloy wheels were also an option on many models (as were 390mmx150mm steel wheels).

    And wagons were 14 x 5.5, right?

    Which model has the different wheels front and rear?

    I don't think any of the Australian market 505's were different front and rear, Ray.

    There was a post about different front and rear here a while back, but I suspect that it was a non standard set up.

    As you suggest, wagons with steel wheels were 14 x5.5", but wagons with alloys were variously 14 x 6" or 15 x6"

    Cheers

    I am thinking about buying a 505 GR, but find the standard steel wheels quite ugly - so was thinking of getting some Pug hubcaps.

    I don't suppose wreckers would have any... so any current model Pugs with 14" hubs I could order? Any idea how much it would cost to order Pug hubs (like off a 306 or something like that), or is this a silly idea?

    Just want to make it look a little nicer

    thanks again.

    None... but you can fit 604 wheels.

    And now the 504s are falling off the road there are some 'mags' around.
