It's legal, by two pounds, so, there's that going for them, lol. Subaru may like their safety margins, but that doesn't mean you have to.
Thanks for the sanity check, I'm sure you're right. But I'm also skeptical of the accuracy of the wheel's stated load rating given that the wheel is 29 lbs and the construction looks a lot beefier than many wheels rated much higher, like the LM Shift. Seems like in some cases they might just throw a conservative number on there instead of actually doing destructive testing or thorough design analysis or whatever method is actually used to determine these numbers for every wheel model made. Anyway, in the end I joined the herd and (barely) snagged a set of the KMC 708's, plus Falken Wildpeaks. I didn't particularly want to push my wheels out with an offset change, but oh well. I'm assuming Subaru put em at 55 for reason--I can think of a few, but I'm curious what the main one is. MPG rating? Noise? Handling? Appearance? A mix of factors?
