Is anyone using a 235/65-17 or a 235/60-17 tire on a stock 4th Gen Outback (ie. 2014)?
If yes, any clearance or rubbing issues?

thanks in advance.
ps - not concerned with speedometer readings, just asking about clearance issues.

You can fit a 235/60R-17 on your Outback without any rubbing. Going to a 235/65R-17 may cause some rubbing. It is recommended to stay at a maximum height of 28.46 inches for proper clearance on your Subaru.

Please let us know if we can be of assistance.
Thank you

I just installed 235/65/17 Falken Wildpeak A/T Trails on my 2011 Outback. No lift, mods, or rubbing. It’s definitely a tight fit. I do have them on non-stock wheels but they are +45 off set vs stock +48 off set so it should be fully doable stock. You couldn’t possibly fit more tire in the wheel well

That looks really nice. Thanks for the pics.

After doing some measuring on mine, that's about what I was figuring for clearance. I ended up playing it safe though and ordered a set of Cooper Discoverer AT/3 4S's in 235/60-17. They will be only about a 1/2 taller and wider. Maybe next time I'll go for the 235/65's. Need to find some nice rims like yours!

Went with the Coopers as I have had a set on my Grand Cherokee for a couple years now. They are aggressive looking, work great in the snow, and are surprisingly quite on the highway.
