Thanks @bobk25

Update:- the 65s fit fine, as per the pics below. It may be psychological as well, but the car feels a little more solid with the higher profile tyres, at least on the 5km drive home. For the record...

Tyre brand and size: Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 215/65/16 (used so not full tread)
Rim width and height: Violento (made by Dunlop) 16 x 6.5J
Rim offset: +48
Any rubbing: none (so far)
Suspension: stock
Using any spacers: no

Sweet!
High profile tires are a must over here - pot holes, gullies.
I'm sporting Goodyear Wrangler AT with silent armour noise reduction.

I plan on going from a 17in OEM wheel to a 15in. Curious if I will need different/smaller brakes? On a 2012 forester

I recently agonised unnecessarily over putting slightly larger than stock AT tires on my 2010. Went with the Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S. 215/70/16 on the stock alloys. The fit with plenty of spring perch clearance, but I was worried about rubbing on the rear of the front wheel wells at some steering angles, but all is fine, no rubbing. Still plenty of space in the rear. They're quiet, not as heavy as many other AT tires and offer excellent grip with minimal rolling resistance increase. Impact on fuel economy tbd, early signs are 1lt/100km.

I got a 2019 Forester with 225/55/r18 tires. Does anyone know how big I can go without lifting and without rubbing in the 2019 Forester?

235/55r18
245/55r18
etc ...

225/60r18
225/65r18
etc ...

I have seen posts for 235/55r18 can the 2019 take anything bigger?


Thanks

Wife & I are wondering the same thing as Alexyef above, what will AT tire will fit our 2019 Touring without rubbing. We'd like to get something a little more aggressive than the factory tires, really like the KO2's, have them on my F150, but don't think they'll fit. Mentioned to the wife that we might have to add a slight lift, surprisingly she was on board with it, but concerned about the possibility of it voiding the warranty.

Any input would be appreciated.

@Sparky Kilowatt I have another 20-30k on my tires, but if we don’t get a response on this tread I was thinking of getting old 225/60r18 tires mounted(hopefully really cheap since they are old) and see if there is any rubbing. Then after a 1000 miles or so, make a decision between 235/55R18 and 225/60r 18.

I'm with you. I'd also like to know if I can go to 15's or 16's without having issues with brake clearance.
