For those who follow rally racing these rims are legendary. The VT Spec version of this wheel was on a Subaru factory team car that blew a rear tire at the start of a 14mile special stage. The car was able to complete the stage including jumps and stretches over 100mph with the intact (but badly damaged) wheel. These are the famous Method Race Wheels MR502s in 17×8 and the Outback bolt pattern. Since the Outback will be going places this fall where a tow out can be thousands of dollars I figured these were a good choice to go with my new Yokohama Geolandar G015 adventure tires.
