New wheels and tires installed. Motegi MR118 17x8et32 with Conti TerrainContacts 245/65/17. Experienced a tiny bit of rubbing on the inner fender well in the front, so it was trimmed a little to prevent it. Not a big deal, but I might as well not hear it. Also got the Ecohitch and trailer wiring harness installed. Shout out to @Discount Tire for the help in getting the wheels and tires picked out, ordered and shipped to me, and my local DT shop for a quick and easy install, as well as to AllPro Subaru for the hitch install.

time to roll the fenders, like a classic drag racer with humongous tires.


? Want people to stop needing to ask what exact car you have? year -model -engine -trans, scroll down to "your car":

Haha, yeah, they definitely fill the wheel wells some. I guess many I've seen with this setup may already have a lift, so it's not as noticeable then. I like it though...ride feels good, not a ton of noise, and definitely a more capable tire than the Duelers.

Your second photo really gives a good look at your new tire/wheel package. That should be a big improvement in traction, plus it looks amazing.

Thank you for your business.

Your OB looks beautiful.

I used to work for Discount Tire. One of the best companies out there. Currently do business with Les Schwab, but only because they give me a 30% discount through my employer; can't beat that.

Any time! One of my favorite occupations I've had, and a great company to work for. Really appreciated working with a great team and my manager always made sure he had my best interest at heart. Just a small shout-out to TXS 21!

@martin_j001: I am looking to purchase a hitch and I was wondering what made you pick the EcoHitch over the Draw-Tite.
