Hi Subie community. I was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to fit 15" wheels on a 2020 Forester Sport. I've would to add 225, 75, R15 all terrain tires if possible. Multiple blogs I've read say that 17"s is the smallest I can go. I don't plan on lifting my Subie. I just meaty tires. I would appreciate any insight and suggestions. Thank you.

15" will not fit over the brake rotors on the 2020 sport. i believe 17" is the smallest that will.

Yes. I found out 17's are the smallest I can go. I haven't done anything to the Forester yet. I do know what I'm going to do. I'm going to install a suspension lift from Primitive Racing, as well as skid plates from Rallitek, rock sliders from LP Aventure, and Falken Wildpeaks AT's with a 225/65r17 tire on stock 17" Forester wheels, painted black (maybe plasti dipped).

I'm leaning towards the Falken Wildpeak AT trails (the trails are made for smaller SUV like ours so lighter weight, etc.) sounds like you have a plan. can't wait to see it!

I've researched tires until my eyes bled. Lol! I had it narrowed down to Falken Wildpeaks, Toyo Open Country AT3's, and Pirelli Scorpions AT's. I was back and forth countless times. I'm going with Wildpeaks. Before 2015, there weren't really any light weight AT's for crossovers and small SUV's on the market. Then when Toyota came out with the Rav4 TRD, they commissioned R&D into light weight AT's. Enter Falken Wildpeaks. They were tested on Rav4's and Foresters (could've been Crosstreks or Outbacks, I don't exactly recall). So that made me decide on Falken Wildpeaks, along with the many dominantly positive reviews.
