I ran stock rims w/ Yokahama GO15 AT's (225/65R17) for this last season before going to my studded same size tires;
I am keeping my stock rims for/ with my winter studded tires for full swap out's w/ my new (Still to be selected) likely
16" Rally rims and off road tires..

I need input on the perfect rim and tire set ups in your opinions..
I have considered just dropping my rim size to 16" w/ slightly wider (7.5") rims and duplicating the O.D., offset and width
which is about a 245/70R16 on 16x7.5 +48 rims..

Anyone think there's a better idea?

My '14 2.5i Limited has a Primitive Racing 1.5" lift and progressive springs and my Geolander Yoka, 225/65R17's worked well and never rubbed but are close, and I want/ need more aggressive tread for here in the mud and volcanic shale, etc..

Looks "AWDsome"...! How have those Yoko's held up? And what kind of trade off in sound and ride did you notice?

Same year n model. Looking at a smaller 1" lift but want a good AT tire that won't wear out after 2 years and won't sound like a freight train going down the road...
