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

Can someone tell me why Subaru puts street tires on a vehicle that is promoted as off road oriented anyway?

Note: This review is coming from an owner who came from a 2009 GMC Sierra Crew Cab 4x4 that was slightly lifted and running 33" inch, 3 ply sidewall tires.
Because it is primarily a road car? And because 99% of them will never venture further off pavement than their owner's backyard, or a graded dirt road? Not to mention because a tire like the Geolander will increase ride harshness, and decrease fuel mileage. But I'm sure the question was really only hypothetical, right?

Why do manufacturers put street oriented tires on light trucks and crossovers? Same reason. As much as I hate to say it, if you were to have a testing authority run the car through a number of handling tests, I'd bet that it would 'do better' on the stock tires, despite the improved feel...

how about the stock tire? It's not bad for an all round tire. Yes, there's always better or more focused tires out there, but the stock is an OK tire.
Really? Cause if that's true, its a novel new step for Subaru :p
