hello,my daughter has an 11 forester and my wife has a 15.the 11 has 225/55/17 and the 15 has 225/60/17's.
the 11 is due for new tires,like the way the 15 looks with a little taller sidewall,anyone running a 225/60/17 on their 11?don't really see an issue as long as I replace all 4 and the worst is the speedo will be off by a very little amount.
any input on this?also I can get the 225/60/17 a liitle cheaper too.thanks

Using this calculator:

https://tiresize.com/comparison/

it looks like 225/60/17 is almost exactly the same size as 215/75/15, which is what I currently have on my 2012 (same body style as 2011) with no issues. I previously ran 225/65/16, also very very close in size, and with no problem at all.

AFAIK the wheels on the 2015 should mount right up onto the 2011, so I would just test fit one off your wife's car onto your daughter's to confirm..?
