05 rs brakes on my 97 outback
« on: January 08, 2015, 11:58:14 AM »
So I have a frozen caliper and warped rotors on my 97 legacy, and I have 05 2.5rs calipers still laying around from my old Impreza.  Will the stock 15 inch outback alloy wheels clear the rs brakes?  I couldn't find anything through a fast Google search.

I think they should clear not 100%  i looked up part numbers and the RS and TS wagon share the same rotor and the TS wagon came with 15" steelies.  Its only 2 bolts to slap them on once the wheel is off.  Try and let us know.

yeah I just didn't want to buy the rotors and have them not clear.  I was almost sure they would too because (at least advance auto numbers) the rotors have the same part numbers in between the 97 outback and the 05 rs.

I had those wheels on my 04 TS Wagon, and I believe the brakes are the same as the RS.

EDIT: Yes, this is a photo of a bike, but its the best photo of the wheels on the car that I've got.

I had many different sets of 15s on my 05rs

Everyone I tried cleared without spacers.

Same ones as Skyphix had. 02 subaru 15inch steels, and late 90s GM 5x100 steels

I'm pretty sure the Outback, GT and RS shared the same brakes at that time.  The one time I replaced rotors on the Outback, they were the same P/N as the GT. 15's cleared all of those.
