Is anyone running the 225/60/17 Yokohama Geolander A/T-S on their 2010 Outback? If so, how are they?

As far as I can tell from, the above-mentioned Yoko Geolander is (so far) the only A/T tire available in the right size for Premium and Limited 2010 OB's. It seems like a good choice, for anyone who might want to actually go off-road, and should be very good in snow, I would think.

My favorite A/T tire (from other vehicles) has been the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo, but it's not available in the right size.

Our ContiProContact tires are rated fairly decently, but not great, in the Tire Rack's
"Grand Touring" category. Most of the other tire choices that I've heard people talking about are actually in the "Standard Touring" category (as just one example, the Goodyear TripleTred).

What's not so clear from the Tire Rack's ratings is how to compare a highly-rated Standard Touring tire, with a less-well rated tire from a "higher performance" category (e.g. Grand Touring, or one of the "Performance" categories).

In principle a Grand Touring tire (generally intended for higher-end sedans) is being judged (whether it is via a Tire Rack test, or just buyer surveys) to a somewhat higher standard of driving dynamics and performance, versus a standard touring tire that is aimed squarely at more run-of-the-mill sedans, minivans, etc.) But a top-rated standard touring tire may still be a better choice, especially if it is treadwear, lack of noise, comfort, etc., that are the primary considerations.
You could always go to 16inch wheels and have lots of good tire options for the 2010. I might pick up a cheap set of used 16's and have some hard core A/T's put on them at some point. Truth be told for 17inch wheel sets there are not very many options for most cars regarding standard tire sizes unless your sporting some really big jumbo non standard tires
