2012 Forester X, manual transmission
Haven't tried them but looked at them and ended up going with the Conti Terrain Contact at because they were supposed to be quieter. I don't know if that's actually the case since tire noise ratings don't seem very reliable but imo don't get an AT tire unless you spend a lot of time off road or you have another car for daily driving. I got them just for weekend warrior stuff/daily city driving and in retrospect I don't think Foresters are really insulated enough to keep the noise levels okay. 60+ on even a good highway and it's pretty loud for my liking, they seem to ride great though otherwise.
So is anyone running these tires on a stock Forester? I have the R/T's on my truck, and have always been impressed with these tires!! Pics?? https://www.discounttire.com/buy-tires/toyo-tire-open-country-a-t-iii/p/89568[ATTACH type="full" alt="549111"]549111[/ATTACH]
Not necessary, but you'd end up with an awfully small amount of uptravel due to clearance issues.
Gotcha. I used to drive a lifted cherokee on 35" IROKs and no muffler, so I know that feelingThanks man. Road noise isn't an issue with me. I currently drive a lifted f150 with 35" Open Country RT's...and no muffler. 😂😂 ...I just love the look of the Open Country tires!
