Tires and wheels that are proven to fit

The purpose of this thread is to become a sticky for educational and ogling purposes only. Please respect the purpose of this thread as it will be beneficial not only now while the 2015 is in its infancy, but also in a decade when some lucky newcomer gets a ride.

Please post your specs of tire and wheel, followed by a picture.
Tire specs should include brand/model along with the measurement.
Wheel Specs need to include width and offset of wheel as well as size.


Thank you

245/65/17 will fit if you don't have mud flaps.
235/65/17 will fit with mud flaps.

You may need some minor wheel well modification (heat gun to shrink the liner, etc) if you are thinking about 235/70/17. Creso's 225/70/17 are maxing it out. There is one spot where they just barely touch at full lock and articulation. Minor enough to be fine for that size, but one size up would likely be problematic. But hey, give it a shot and let us know how it turns out!

On 2012 - 2014 Subaru Outbacks with 17" OEM wheels, you can safely upgrade from 225/60/17 to 235/60/17 tires. Some people have trimmed 1/16" off the inner portion of the mudflap (to prevent slight rubbing when sharply turning on steep inclines) and others report making no minor modification.

235mm size has a 1.7% taller rolling circumference difference (speedometer reads 1.7% lower) and the ride height difference is only .24" taller.

You can play around with the numbers on the Tire Size Calculator (below):

Looking forward to seeing some nice wheels here. I'm picking up a white Premium Outback this weekend and the only thing I don't like about it so far are the stock wheels.

I wasn't a fan of the wheels that come on the Premium but they have grown on my (partly because they match the ice metallic silver). However, I do see new wheels sometime in the future. Find someone with a base 2.5i and they would probably be happy with your cast-offs if the price is right.

Cool pictures, especially 5 and 7. I hope you'll have more in the future (or at least until I can start taking pictures of my own).
