Hey there,

Are those 225/50/17's ? I have the same springs as you...and I'm wondering how the ride comfort is with that tire profile ? I have 225/55/17....and it feels decent...comfort wise....but I'm also leaving some handeling on the table.

Not that I have any......but would you say the ride comfort is "Inlaw Friendly" or not ?

Thanks Peaty

A forester...........From hell.

The ride is OK but not something I'd want to take on a very long ride. The thing is I have the Forester STi JDM suspension and it's stiffer than the OEM setup. That plays a big roll in the way it feels. It's not bone jarring by any means . It is tough to drink my coffee in the AM though. I have to be careful to not chip a tooth going over expansion joints ;)

Sweet XT

I just wanted to say, that your red XT looks really sweet. I think thoose wheels look really good on it, they pick up on the gray color from the brush guard. There are a lot of nice looking black and silver ones, I think this one stands out!
Congrats

And....you just don't see many of them at all. I have allegience to the Black Forester Clan of death...no doubt....but the Red XT's look classy. We definitely need more pics of some modded ones here.

Oi8..I sent you a PM a while back. I travel through Frederick about 2-4 times per month from Pittsburgh to Leesburg. We should meet up and you can join our NOVA FXT clan. So far we have Alecksey (the flying russian), Myself (GTP), Maestro (Marco), Damwagn (Chris), and Jae (GroceryGetter). I am the only black FXT. I also want to see how your larger tires ride. Mine are 235-45-17s and tend to be a bit firm on my suspension.

PM me or holler back in a thread.

Summertime I use XT wheels, winter time I use painted Steel wheels w/snow tires.




I've added a new audio system (JVC CD/DVD HU, MB Quart speakers, JL 8" in sub location)
dash pocket LCD screen
Rear hatch lift bar
slush mats (for winter)
Tinted Windows

It is mainly the wifes daily driver so we went with an X over an XT. She wanted the better mileage (I take the bus). Plus it isn't as tempting to mod a NA engine. If we had an XT, I'd go broke upgrading every aspect of it. Maybe oneday... :)

I passed up on a red MY06 XSL because I thought the colour just wasn't quite right, despite my outgoing MY92 Liberty/Legacy was also a red colo(u)r.

I have to say however, it's a different story with the MY06 XTs. There's just something about the bonnet scoop and 17 inch 5-spoke wheels that just makes red a great combination.
