  3. Wheels and Tires
    Hello, I have recently installed a combo of 06 wrx factory struts and Mach v lowering springs. I just want to find some wheels that would look good on my forester while still clearing the bottom of the strut tower and also not removing the liner/rolling fenders. It is already pretty low on the...

    I've already made a financial mistake buying the tinted subiespeed lights. They're nice but illegal in my state. I lost approx $500 because of it. I just want to make sure I'm doing everything right before I get my new tires/wheels. I own a 2016 base model that needs to get the tires changed...

    Hello everyone. I recently got into my first Subaru. It came with a set of winter wheels, which unfortunately have 12 year old General Altimax Arctic studded tires on them. Yikes. I live in Vancouver but do very little driving around town, almost none. I bought the Forester pretty much...

    I'll try to keep this short & sweet. Researching A/T wheels and tires can be overwhelming at times. I don't know about yall, but it helps me to see all the numbers right in front of me and in once place. So I did a thing and I made a spreadsheet. lol In my research I concluded that the SK gens...

    I got Crossclimate+s put on today and the boys at the tire shop (so many new hires) didn't want to change the symmetrical toe in the back since it had 0.00 thrust angle. The car didn't need alignment according to them (front alignment is included with the tires, I had paid for rear but will ask...

    Hello fellow Subaru enthusiast! I am a newbie to this forum. I would like to start modding my 2019 Forester Sport and I am interested in getting all terrain tires. Does anyone have any recommendations on tires if I use my stock wheels? Tires I have researched are the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015...

    Hey guys! I am in need of new tires for my FXT Touring. I have been looking at all terrains but I don’t see much information on the two I’m looking at: Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 & the Falken Wildpeak A/T. I am curious on the performance of both and also curious on whether anyone has had any...

    I'm looking into grabbing new wheels and tires for my 06 fxt. I want to go wider on the wheels but without rolling or pulling fenders, possibly upgrading to 17x7.5 or 17x8. What's the widest I can go on wheel size without having to roll/pull fenders and what offset would be optimal to avoid...
  13. Wheels and Tires
    Hey all, Looking to put some All terrain tires on my 2010, and I am tossing between BFG ko2, Yokohama Geolandar AT and potentially Cooper Discovery. I’ve heard many good things about th BFGs on foresters and many photos but not quite sure if they’re worth the extra cash. Will be doing some...

    I just lifted my 2020 Forester Sport and now am looking at Falken Wildpeak A/T3W but the closest size they have is 245 /65 R17 or 215 /65R17. I have a Readylift 2" kit on it and they said a 225/65R17 tire would fit but for the A/T3W's, they don't have that size. I wanted to see if anyone else...

    My apologies, I’m going to be “that guy”... I’ve seen lots of folks asking “largest tires” questions. Been doing TONS of research on here. But, everyone’s setup runs a bit different, and rarely get to see/read results on . I’ve done a lot of mod work, but my stock tires are practically bald...

    Hi. New Forester owner as of yesterday. 2020 Forester Sport Black I’m not a big fan of the tires on this unit and would like a more aggressive(BFG KO2) tire. How big can I go without rubbing? Or if I get the ready lift is 255/55/18 the size of choice? Thanks for all the input
  18. Wheels and Tires
    Hey, I have an 02 forester, im getting to a point where I’m going to be needing new tires here in a close while. I am looking at allterains, I’d like a good tire for off-roading, however I’m nervous about the amount of pavement driving that I do. Any suggestions on what tires y’all are running...

    My 2010 forester has 17” rims but I want to switch to a tire with a taller sidewall. I was able to find a set of oem 16” wheels. What tire size should I go with? I drive on a lot of dirt roads in the summer and I’m looking for something a little more beefier
