Doing research into tyre sizes for wheel options. Anyone running a 245/40 profile on an 8" wide wheel? I like having sidewall to protect the lip of the wheel and to provide a fat tyre appearance. I know that the LVVTA say that 8" wide is the minimum for 245/40R18 - Source Basically 3 options at the moment: 8" wide with 245/40 8" wide with 235/45 - which is a less common tyre size 8.5" wide with 245/40 - 8.5" wide is harder to find in the style I'm looking at Also figured its a good place to discuss tyre vs rim widths, pros/cons, photos of stretch/fat tyres etc
Hey team! Have been quoted $550 to replace a front wheel hub on my '05 Legacy BLE Spec B Sedan. After doing some research I have determined that it is probably a backyard type job with the right tools and a mate or two with experience. I have found a couple of hub pricings but want to see if any of you have dealt with these brands before or know of any alternatives. Febest - $140 FBJ - $80 Subaru Genuine - $300 ish Any other tips or tricks about the job as a whole would be appreciated too, I think I have a good handle on how to do it but if there are any hidden pitfalls I would like to hear about it.
