Yokohama Geolander AT/S 225/65R17 on 2013 Outback

When I bought my 2012 Outback 2.5i Premium I immediately swapped the stock tires for Yokohama Geolander AT/S in the stock 225/60R17 size. When I picked up my 2013 I was planning on getting the same Yokohama Geolanders again. Apparently the 225/60R17 is on international back order until next year! Discount Tire couldn't find them anywhere, so I called Yokohama direct and they said 42 week backorder.

My local Discount Tire had a set of 225/65R17 in stock, so I went for it. They fit fine, but they rubbed in one spot on the front Splash Guards. I removed them and trimmed a bit, and now no rubbing. I took it offroad and articulated all corners, and the front at full wheel lock, and no rubbing. Three guys at the tire shop sat in the cargo area with no rub in the rear.

Just drove 60mi at 65-75mph and averaged 29.5mi/gal. Everything looks good for now, I'll post an update after I get a few more miles on them.

**** it! Was just getting ready to order these. Got my local Discount Tire guy looking for me now. Thanks for the heads-up!
forget what i said about the rally armor mudflaps. so ill definitely have to take them off when i get taller tires. i wasn't sure, thanks. might as well take off the rear splash guards and sell the whole set.
What did I miss? At what diameter won't the RA flaps work anymore?
Man, found one set of Geolanders in Austin at a pretty random little tire store. Thanks for the heads-up!
I'll see if I can't get a pic up tomorrow. The tire's not on it, so I can get a shot of the mount itself. Also, Yakima makes a tire mount to fit the basket for less DIY inclined folks: Yakima Spare Tire Carrier for Yakima Cargo Baskets: Sports & Outdoors

But it's rather pricey.
That's the one I use. Not much to it. I've got a padlock on it which is cool too.
