    Gen 4: 2010-2014
    Howdy folks, Hoping this finds you healthy and safe. I am headed to Discount Tire (today=6/23/2020) for a new set of summer tires. I run 4 Blizzaks in the winter. The car currently has Continental Contact Pro P225/60R17, with 60K miles; about 35-40 are on those tires and they've worn down to...
  2. Performance differences between OE 225/60/18 and 225/65/17 tire sizes

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hi tire gurus, other than the looks - is there any reason why or why not I could or should not “downgrade” from 18” OEM to 17” stock size A/T's on my Gen 5 H6? There are plenty of used or cheap-ish take-off OE 17” in the internet of things market, and my thought is to simply get some of those...
  3. How do you guys prevent wheel damage when getting new tires installed?

    Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I'm wondering how people go about getting tires installed without having any damage around the outside wheel rim? Last Subaru I had (STI) I had 2 wheels tore up pretty bad when I had the tires replaced. I am scared about getting my Outback tires replaced as the wheels are in great condition...

    Hey everyone, Looking to buy a new set of wheels for my 2004 Outback limited. Getting the Rotiform BLQ 18x8.5.

  8. 2013 Outback whining noise

    General Discussions
    I recently purchased a used 2013 Outback with a little over 120000 miles on it. So far I'm loving every part of being a Subaru owner although I have noticed something since driving it off the lot. Whenever I am losing acceleration there is a whining noise that comes from what seems to be the...
  9. Improving braking in 2019 Outback 3.6R, does swapping tires help?

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Has anyone tried to extract better stopping/shorter stopping distance in their Outback? I sold my 16' Mustang GT and bought the 2019 Outback 3.6R and so far almost after 7,000 Miles I still feel I have more events where I had to stand on the brakes to come to a sudden halt. Often happens if I...
