2017 Subaru Outback 3.6 Limited
Your OB looks great. I prefer the no-lift if there's enough the tire/wheel clearance.
Confirmed. WRX rims with stock tires work without issues.All,
I found a set of rims on CL and want to confirm these will fit. The rims in question are OE Subaru (guessing they are 2018 wrx rims). Ignore the guy in the pic as it is from CL.
Size: 17x8j 55

As for tires, I have a set of Blizzaks I want to put on them.
Will this configuration work? I tried to search this thread however I couldn't find a post that would confirm my thoughts. Thanks!

They 'touch' at full lock, but nothing restricting driving yet... lift soon & then possible trimming if necessary.
These photos are stock height & I haven't heard or felt any rubbing yet, but there isn't much margin for error so I'm keeping it tame till the lift comes.

I put the same tires on my 2019 except for the width, I kept that to 225. They don't seem any louder. As for the mileage I never gave the OEM Bridgstones a fair test before switching. Not a big difference if you ask me.How is the mileage and road noise with these compared to stock tires?
Faint hum/buzz you can only hear with the radio off at 60kph, nothing major at all, drowns out at highway speeds with other noises.235’s? I don’t see those listed as an option in the us. How is the mileage and road noise with these compared to stock tires?
The brakes are too big to go down to a 16 inch wheel.Has anyone ever considered dipping down to a 16” wheel for their offroad-outfitted Outback and then opting for, say, a 245/70/16 tire to give an even more aggressive look (i.e. less wheel; more tire sidewall)?
That size tire has the exact same diameter as a 245/65/17, so would not incur rubbing.
I’ve certainly not seen it done before on this forum...
