  1. Suspension and Handling
    Looking to get 2 inch lift on my Subaru forester x premium. Ive found either shock+strut combos, coilovers, or spacer sets to accomplish this. My question is: whats the best way? Im not looking to go off roading or anything in the vehicle currently. Maybe someday when I can afford another...
  2. Wheels and Tires
    I have always loved the simple, 17'', five-spoked rims that came stock on the approx 2010/earlier gen 3 models- I will try to add a link. I do not see the same style rim present on the 2013 model (which is what I will soon have), and when I find those rims for sale they are not listed to fit the...
  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...

  5. Offroad Suspension
    I’m a recent forum member, and the current situation has allowed me to finish projects on my subie. I was wondering what the most adequate / financially sound option there is when it comes to lifting. I currently have the stock suspension and wheels. I wasn’t trying to really do more than a 2”...
  6. Wheels and Tires
    So, I’m trying to justify the cost of replacing the brand new wheels on my 2020, because I’d love black wheels instead of the stock premium snowflake pattern. If I had the extra cash at the moment, I’d put the sport trim 18” wheels on it (and new tires because of the wheel size difference)...

    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...
  8. Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    I recently picked up a 2020 Forester 'Limited' with 18" wheels but I find the ride to be a little more bumpy than I remember from the test drive. Is this just the nature of 18" wheels? Have any other owners found the ride to be bumpy or are you happy with the ride comfort level? I guess I'll get...

    Hey all! My name is kai, I’m new here. Just purchased a 2015 Subaru Forester 2.5i and am searching for some slightly beefier aftermarket rims and tires. I am looking at a set of 5x100 ESR sr11 18x9.5 +32 with BF Goodyear 245/40 tires on them. Anyone know if this will rub on my forester or if I...
  10. Wheels and Tires
    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...
  11. 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...

    Hi, does anyone know the paint code for these STI V7 wheels: The thread on OEM wheels that fit foresters list the color as EDM Gunmetal, but I'm having no luck finding the paint code. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Link from wheel thread: Subaru OEM wheels that fit the Forester
  13. Wheels and Tires
    Has anyone put BRZ PP oem wheels on their Forester? I've got a '13 2.5XT that I want to swap the wheels on and thought the PP wheels would look good. Wondering if anyone has had any fit issues or rubbing? Pretty sure it wouldn't be a big deal since the specs are are identical other than the...
  14. Wheels and Tires
    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...
  15. Wheels and Tires
    I've done my own tire rotations 3 times over the last 20k miles and my right passenger wheel always gives me issues. First, when I remove the wheels, this hub always needs a few kicks or whacks with a sledge to break it free from the hub. No other hubs give me issues, but all wheels give me...

    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...
