Angry All-terrain tires

Tire Dealers keep telling me that there are NO all-terrain tires manufactured that fit the standard Subaru Forester wheel. Is this true?

If your '98 uses tire size of 205/70-15 then the Pirelli I posted above should fit, since Pirelli's size chart lists that size as available.

Does your 15" spare wheel still fit in the tyre well when shod with 205/75/15s?
