Yokohama Geolander A/T-S vs Cooper Discoverer A-T3
I should hopefully be picking up my 2016 Forester 2.5i Touring 6spd in the next couple weeks and my first order of business is getting some better tires.
After a couple days of searching the forum, I've narrowed it down to the Yoko Geolander A/T-S in 225/60/17 or the Cooper Discoverer A-T3 in 235/60/17. Now the issue is that the Yokohama's are not available in Canada in that size. I can order them from Tirerack and pick them up just across the border and bring them home. Or the Cooper's I can get locally for about the same price. The big thing is do the Cooper's being a 235 width tire fit the 14+ Forester, on stock rims, with no rubbing? I've looked at I don't know how many threads and some people say they fit with no rubbing, others say there is a bit of rub and some people have them on different offset wheels and they fit. Can anyone with first hand experience definitively say the 235 Cooper's rub or not?
