If this topic has been discussed, then sorry, but search couldn't get me valuable results.
The question is - will 215/60 R17 tyres fit on stock suspension SF5 turbo? Can't say about the ET, as I don't have any rims now, so advices about that are also welcome.

I am curious about this too. I found someone selling OEM Crosstrek wheels and I'm thinking about putting 215/60r17 all terrain tires on them. Has anybody fit these on their 1998-2002 (sf) forester while using the OEM struts without spacers? Also if anybody has fit Crosstrek OEM wheels and OEM tires on a 1998-2002 (sf) Forester with no issues please feel free to chime in! My biggest concern is strut clearance front and rear. I can't switch to sg struts at the moment. I can live with a little plastic rubbing

Here is what i know about the wheels and tires:
