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.

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. :roadtrip:

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.

Thank you for your previous service, Old Chub!
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.

The EcoHitch popped up used on here, so I snagged it. Cost me about the same as the DrawTite would have.

Nice, I am looking at the EcoHitch because it appears to sit a little bit closer to the bottom of the bumper than the Draw-Tite, although I have yet to verify that is actually the case...

Fourtreks awning mounts came in yesterday, so got the ARB 2000 mounted and tested out. The munchkin approves. :)

I'm so glad you got rid of the donut on the roof basket.

Do you stuff things in the spare tire well now?

Me too...not like it was going to be of much use with these tires/wheels anyway, lol. And yeah, that area has been chock full since I removed the donut from that location. I keep a couple blankets, hat(s), gloves (both for warmth and work), water, tools, 12v air compressor, tie downs, etc under there, plus a bunch of shooting range related accessories (staple gun, staples, target pasters, measuring tape, etc).






Goodness! I've owned vehicles with less metal :surprise: Nice stuff...and nice ride!

Thanks! They are definitely some beefy mounts, that's for sure. :)

I have a similar set up on my 2018 gray OB. The ARB awning with Four Treks mount makes an easy set up. Curious as to why the drivers versus passenger side mounting? Mine is on the passenger side because it provides more shade at the beach.

As my spare is on the passenger side of the rack, I definitely don't want to be having to lift the spare (full size) over the awning to get it off the rack. :)
