A good Monday morning read! All 675 posts - great thread.

But an unanswered question posed at least 3 times: Will 16" takeoff's from a Gen-3 Forester fit on a (non-turbo) 2018 SJ generation Forester Limited. What I saw: Yes on a 2015 Forester (pre-mid cycle refresh), NO on a 2018 XT (turbo).
The situation: Our 2013 Honda CR-V LX AWD gave it's life last month to protect my daughter (driver) and wife in a multi-car pileup. Left behind in my garage is a set of General Altimax Arctic 12 winter tires in size 215/70-16 (XL) 104T with 11/32" tread on Honda steel rims. I could put them up for sale as-is, or, repurpose these almost new winter tires for when the kid takes the Forester thru the Adirondack Park to an Upstate college town.

215/70-16 vs 225/60-17 is a 1% difference in circumference, and the load rating is higher. More sidewall is better for the poor winter roads and potential deep snows. But it does mean going with a rim size NOT sold on SJ models.

The 2009-2013 Forester lower trim models had a 5 spoke painted alloy 16 x 6.5" (28111SC010 and a couple of variants). All specs are the same (5x100, offset 48). Will they work on a 2018?

So, no replies. I guess maybe nobody has done this....

I went to the Tirerack website and searched for a Winter Wheel & Tire Package for a 2018 2.5i Limited, and the Preferred setup came back as a 215/70-16 tire (they have the General Arctic 12 for $104 each) on a 16" wheel with an offset of 48 to 50 mm (a choice of 35 styles).

Perfect! I already have almost new tires, and Gen-III Forester 16" wheels look like they should fit. The hunt begins....

Just need to order a set of Autel MX-1 sensors to clone to the OEM, and go back to Mavis to assemble the pieces.

YW! I don't even have the vehicle yet (dealer is moving slowly on some reconditioning issues), and I'm already shopping for winter sneakers.
