I made a spreadsheet for 17" OEM wheels (7" width/48 offset) on my stock 2016 Subaru Forester (2.5i Premium, stock everything, not lowered or raised) for Michelin A/S 3+ (aka "best all weather tire"). I considered adding the Pilot Sport 4S (aka "best summer tire"), but it seemed like it would be overkill for a Forester.

Tire size comparison links:


Summary:
Closest tire size for Michelin A/S 3+ on 17" OEM wheels on 2016 Forester is 235/55/R17
The one Michelin makes is designated as 235/55 ZR17 99W
I am going all-weather because I live in Northern VA which does not need winter tires, but temperature gets below freezing in Feb or March so running performance summer tires on a daily driver that will never be off road does not make much sense. Too much traffic in the area anyways.

Adding comparisons for Michelin 17" Pilot Sport 4S and Pilot Sport 4 SUV
Closest fit for stock 17" Subaru OEM wheel would be 235/65/17 Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV
Photos in attachment show what conversion from 235/55/17 Pilot Sport A/S 3+ to 235/65/17 Pilot Sport 4 SUV would look like.
