  1. Suspension and Handling
    Did anyone experience the rear end feels like sliding (wobbly feel) even on dry conditions whenever you hit a pothole? I also noticed that my tire wear at the rear is drastically faster than the front. P.S. Car is aligned, wheels are balanced, just changed new tires and wheel bearings. Thanks!

    Does anyone have a picture or know which stock tires (all season) come with a 2020 Forester? I know mine were Bridgestone but need to know the type. Reason for asking is the dealership lost my tires from storage and are giving me a run around. The car was bought in Ontario Canada if that helps...

    Currently I'm looking at the Continental TrueContact tour and the PureContact LS. Review article: Continental TrueContact tour vs PureContact LS. Our local tire store does not carry the PureContact tire, so that limit things a bit. I'm also open to other tires suggestions, such as the Michelin...

    My dads dead so I have to ask you guys. I'm getting tires replaced for the first time in my life in my old 99. It has the stock steelies but I bought a set of 5 legacy GT snowflakes from a guy that I want to swap out when I get the new tires. I'm pretty sure they're the exact same size wheel...

    I have a Subaru Forester 2017 Touring and the OEM tires that came with it are are the: Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 | P225/55R18. These tires have not performed very well in the rain or snow... Additionally, I noticed after visiting family that whenever I go over bumps in cities you really feel...

    Hi there, I have a 2017 forester xt touring with the stock 18” wheels wrapped in old geolander at 225/55/r18s and am wondering if a pair of 17” stock wheels off the wilderness with geolander 225/65/r17 would fit my 2017? Not so much worried about rubbing or size since they’re only about 3%...

    I have stock rims with new tires at stock size: 225/55R18. I want to try a smaller diameter for winter tires, and swap them out. Can I go to 16"? I may want to use the new wheels during the warm seasons to get less jarring ride. If you've gone down to 16, how was the ride controlled, and...
  11. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    I recently was shopping for tires (Michelin Cross Climate 2) for my '19 Forester and despite advise to the contrary on this forum, I included the dealer in my search. Their price was better than Discount Tire (the most prevalent tire place in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market) and any other...

    I have a 2019 Sport. I replaced the OEM wheels/tires with Black Rhino Boxer wheels and Pirellli Scorpion 225/65R17. Tires are high-quality: as quiet as stock, and much better in rain and snow. But they looked undersized on my car. I recently swapped them to another car and installed a set of...

    I tried searching around but couldn't find any good answers, so: for the people who've gone to smaller (15 or 16") wheels and/or bigger tires, was the difference noticeable and worth it for off-roading? Right now I'm running stock (225/60/R17) Wildpeaks, and my only gripe with them is ride...
  14. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    I know all-wheel drive is pretty picky about tire circumferences being equal and all that, but here's what I'm wondering. I may have an opportunity to pick up a set of four used Cooper snow tires on wheels for $200. They're the right size (215/60R16) and have probably a couple of seasons worth...
  15. Wheels and Tires / Tyres
    Hello everyone, it’s coming up to fall/winter & I live in Utah which means we are going to get some rain and occasional snow/ice on the roads. I commute a lot, roughly 200 miles a week. Any thoughts on the Falken Wildpeaks to get me through the winter or should I just play on the safer side and...

    I am looking at buying a 2011 Subaru Forester X. I currently have a 2000 Toyota Rav4 that I love dearly for it's extra inch or two of clearance - I drive a lot of BLM and forest service roads that are not exactly ATV trails, but significantly more rugged than your average graded gravel road. I...

    2018 Forester Premium - stock tires are Yokohama Geolandar G91 size 225/60R17 98H. Would there be any problem replacing them with a 225/65R17 size? Pirelli Scorpion Verdi All Season Plus II. I can't seem to find those tires in the 60 size, so the 65 would be very slightly higher I guess - less...

    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...
