    I made a cinematic video of my trip in a forester converted into a camper I used to explore Iceland. The forester makes an appearence starting at 1 minute, after the narration/intro. Pretty cool river crossing at 2:10 Let me know what you think. I am working on another video with my...
  3. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    Hey y'all! New member and first post! I was wondering if you guys could help me out. I recently got a 2011 that I really want to put a light off-road kit on. I've been doing a lot of research on different builds and tire sizes/types, lifts and all that jazz; but this will be my first experience...

    Hi all, so I have a 2016 2.5i (NA) and I've confirmed fitment of the LP1 15x7 with LP Adventure over email, but I'm still a little concerned about that offset. I'm thinking of putting a 215-75-15 AT tire on there too. OEM wheel offset is +48 and from what I've found the acceptable range is down...

    Hey Everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. What're some of the easy beginner trails that a stock 17 can do in Colorado? The only real upgrade I have is AT tires. Looking for something with minimal ruts and rocks. I've looked through the site but I thought I'd put up a post since so...

X-Mode came in handy a few times and the Subaru outperformed my expectations! Hope y’all enjoy! if you like it, throw your brother a subscription please!
  8. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    I'm debating between 29" or 28.5" tires for the next go around on tire purchases and was hoping to get some insights from those of you currently running these sizes. I've got the 1.5" adf lift with subframe spacers and plan to put 16" wheels with +30 offset when I get new tires. Looking for info...

    I’m trying to price out and find tires and rims for my 99 forester but I can’t find good rims out of Canada that fit the bolt pattern and 15” radians I need
  10. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    Hey everyone. First post here so apologies if this has been covered. I've got a 2017 Forester limited and haven't seen specific info on whether or not 16" wheels are a viable option in this specific year/trim. I've seen talk of other SJs running the smaller wheel, but couldn't confirm if there...

    I purchased my Forester in Aug of 2019. This was my second car purchase (my other car is a 2014 Crosstrek). I was so excited to find an XT in my price range and without a ton of miles, that I didn't take the proper steps to make sure I wasn't getting screwed by the dealer : ( Luckily when I...

    TLDNR - Slight rubbing on front. Don't buy. Get the slightly smaller and pricier 225/60/r17. I couldn't find any good definitive answers on tyre sizes in all terrains for the SH around this site. I'de usually be that guy that figures it out and doesn't actually go back and ad my own post to...

    USED Sparco Terra Black Painted Wheels 16"x7" 5x100 +40 offset with Falken WildPeak AT3W Tires 235/70R16 Used wheel & tire (1 of each only). Seems to still be a good amount of tread on the tire left. Decided to sell my 5th tire as I rarely use it and have determined that I don't quite have a...
  15. 2020 Forester Sport 15" wheels. Can it be done?

    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...

    I've looked pretty extensively online about how much a forester off road and done some research about the drive train with the goal of seeing how it stacks against 'more serious' 4wds, specifically those with central diff locking. I have heard that turning off VDC can be helpful in some slippery...

    Hello, Long time lurker, first time poster. Hoping for some advice and assistance... I own a bit of Frankenstein-ish 2004 Forester: has JDM WRX engine, trans and drive train swap, STI shocks/struts and sway bars. It sits rather low and tucked obviously, and im looking to switch to a more stock...
