#289 of 308 Re: 03 Legacy GT driver side floor mat hook broken [03leggt]

The hook is fragile, mine broke long ago, and a friend that owns a Legacy GT has the same thing happen to him.

Hi Juice. Good to know that I'm not alone. I've ordered the hook and will report back how it went.

I never replaced mine. How much was it?
Let me know if you think it'll hold up.

I ordered it on 22July but no call yet. It sounded like it was going to be under $10 CAD. I'll let you know how things look when I receive it.

It came in on Aug 2nd. I finally got around to installing it. Centaur Subaru of Calgary gave it to me free of charge although there is noramlly a cost. There were no instructions with it. It just fastens onto the seat bolt. Easy to do yourself. At first, it didn't look like it would line up properly but it does hold the mat mat in place.">
#294 of 308 Minus one wheel conversion
Oct 14, 2006 (1:24 pm)
I am looking for winter tires. I currently have P205/55/R16 on my 03Legacy GT. The APA site says I should go with a minus conversion for winter. The wheel is smaller but the tire diameter larger with this type of conversion. Does anyone know what Subaru recommends and how I can find the correct conversion? A local tire dealer wants to sell me Toyo G02+ which seem a good compromise between ice/snow/pavement. I'm also looking at Michelin Pilot Alpins. The Blizzak Revo is not so good on the pavement according to my research so far.

Go to either www.tirerack.com, or www.tiretrend.com. You can put in your car, and it gives you the stardard OEM wheel size, or comparable options. A 15" would probably be in the 60's series.
From what I have seen and read the Michelin X-ice seems to be good, as is the Revo. Nokian is a good choice, and Hankook, Kumho for lower cost yet good tires.
I am looking myself.

Thanks bigbad. It comes up with a P225/45/17. I think this makes sense. Smaller rim larger tire. I don't know if that size tire fits on a 15" rim.

That is a 17inch tire not 15 when they say one size smaller they mean a 15inch tire on a 15 inch rim.

You are right hondafriek. I got confused. I need a smaller rim with higher profile. Here is what the APA site says...
"The owners of cars equipped with low profile tires should definitely consider switching to higher profile winter tires mounted on wheels of a smaller diameter. Low profile winter tires are less effective and tend to facilitate the accumulation of snow within the wheels. For more information on downsizing the wheels on your vehicle, check the section about minus one and minus two conversions in this guide."
My Subaru manual says I should not change from the factory size so I better just find an exact fit winter rim and tires as per the door sticker.
