Will 235/65R17 Hankook Dyapros fit?

I have been looking at many threads, everyone seems to go to 15 inch rims. Is there any issues running the stock 17? Or is it to get more side wall for off road?

Ok that makes sense... I am not planning on doing much offroad at all and would like to keep the stock rims. Just having a hard time deciding what tire size to look at. I'd like to get a set of Hankook Dyapros but not sure 235/65r17 will fit also not sure about the performance and mpg hit that would be taken going up to a 29 inch tire. The 225/65r17 (28.5) or even the 235/60r17 (28.1) would probably be more realistic..... being that stock is around 27.6.....

^The MPG's won't be affected that much, like maybe loss of 1 MPG. Main worry would be that the stock wheel offset isn't enough to clear the spring perch. I think it will clear though.

This is my buddy's car, and unfortunately the only pic I have right now. Stock height with 235/65R17 Dynapro ATm. No rubbing or clearance issues at all. Gas mileage seems to be barely affected, if at all.

It's no stretch to use the larger size, they look like they should be stock on the newer Foz. I say go for it, there's no reason why you shouldn't.

After reading a bunch, with the+48 back space on the stock rims, I'm not too certain these will fit. It appears most that are running these tires have rims with +35 back space.

They will fit perfectly. The wheels you see in the pic above are the stock +48 offset wheels from an SH Forester. 235/65R17 is not an aggressive size at all. I think a 29" tire like that should have come on SJ Foresters like yours from the factory.

It's a 2015 base, 6 speed. Don't waste money locally, buy them on Amazon. With Prime it's free shipping and tax-free, plus it's usually the best price around. Then just find a local shop to mount and balance. It usually works out much cheaper that way. Local shops mark everything up like crazy.

Thanks for the update, I'll compare Amazon and local. Being in Canada, shipping from the US has additional exchange costs

That looks like a good size on there. But he says he’s running a Mann lift. I wonder how much that affects the fit?
Regardless I really like the look of those.

The distance between the hub and spring perch should be unchanged. The lift looks like it is springs.

Good call on mentioning the lift, but lifts on Subarus don't really change what tire size you can run though. It's the strut clearance and wheel arches/inner fenders that limit what tires you can run, and those dimensions don't change with a lift.


Honestly though, I'm not sure how to put it any other way; this tire size fits with absolutely zero issues on a stock SJ Forester. You can barely tell they're not the stock size unless you were parked next to another Forester with the smaller 225/60 tires. Lift isn't required. I completely understand wanting to verify before dropping money on something you can't use, but this isn't even a maybe. You just throw them on there and they're good to go.
