@SuBooneru How do you like the Hankook Dynapro ATM's? I'll be purchasing AT tires soon and that is one I'm looking at. Did they hurt your MPG much? Noise? Thanks

Ben

^I've been really happy with them. On my 3rd set after putting around 100k miles total on the previous two sets. They are light and pretty well mannered on the highway for an AT tire. They work really well in snow and have been pretty durable. Never had a flat until recently even though I've logged plenty of rough dirt road miles with them. They only hurt my gas mileage by like 1-2 MPG's from what I can tell and they're not too loud. They're really quiet for the first few thousand miles, but will start to get louder as they get more worn. Rotation and even wear will probably minimize the noise.

Joined the forum from NASIOC as a new owner of an 18' XT Premium. Dude, I love the setup. So that's totally stock ride height except for the wheels and tires?

Is there any rubbing or effects with articulation? My Fozzy will be on the street 95% of the time but I want to have a little off-road capability for camping, National Parks, etc... Well, those type of adventures. You also appear to be a photographer, a great feed on Flickr.

^Thanks! Yeah it's at stock height for now and it just rubs a small amount on the inner plastic fender liner, only when turning at low speeds near full lock. Mostly just turning in and out of parking spots.

That's exactly why I bought the 18 model as well because I wanted the XT and was disappointed that they didn't make it with the redesign. I was thinking about that color too but went with the Quartz blue instead. I look forward to watching your build.

Hello,

Could you tell me where you took those pics by the ocean?

Looks Amazing.

Beautiful Forester. I like the way it looks.

Thanks! I took the pics at Goat Rock beach, which is in between the towns of Bodega Bay and Jenner.

Have you thought about upgrading the aesthetics of your exhaust?.....

Looks great! I was considering the same tires on my 2018 2.5 Touring. Do you know anyone running the same size as you on a non turbo? I am hoping to keep the old rims and just run the DynaPros. Do you have any pictures of the spring perch clearance and front scrub?

I haven't since I have an aftermarket Nameless Exhaust right now. Not really happy with the sound though, so might go back to OEM and I do like the modified tips you linked. Might have to go that route. Thanks for the idea.

I've seen a few people on here that have ran a similar wheel setup with Dynapros on a non turbo. Don't remember hearing any complaints. Below our a couple pictures from my 14XT. Not the best, but I think might help you. The one makes the tire look closer to the perch than it actually is:

Very nice pics! What kind of equipment did you use? I see some outward flaring so maybe a 24-70 lens? Regardless, they look great and Sepia is a great color too! I might have to go this route when I test drive another Forester!

Nice setup for sure! I have a 18, non XT and considering your set up. Couple questions, is your speedo still close to accurate and did you have any challenges with the TPMS?
