Will 235/75/15 fit on my 2001 forester?
I have subaru forester 2013 which only fitted steel wheels. Base on your website, the actual alloy wheels for this car is 17x7 ET48. Is that okay if I fit cx5 wheels ( 17x7 ET 50) to my car. My main concern is the offset between those wheels.

Hi,Rich,Yes,according to OEM tire size,it can fit for.And if you can show your both current tire size,I can confirm it better.
Sorry, did not reply, please see post below this one
I don't know the exact tire size, but I do know the outback are 16" rims, and the forrester are 17" rims. I'm assuming that going smaller will not be an issue, they are not any social or custom wide rims or anything like that so don't see that as a problem, more looking for confirmation is allWas also wondering if the different size rims will cause damage to the all wheel drive as wellThanks
Hi,Rich,If they are not any custom wheels,You also need to confirm the bolt pattern ,if the tolerance within 5mm,it can fit for.
A little confused on the offset specs for 2016 Subaru Forester 2.5 premium. Specs page says 48mm but another panel says 43mm to 48mm is it variable?

Just bought a 2017 Subaru Forester with 17" alloy wheels. I have the 16" steel rims with mounted snows from our 2006 Forester. Will these fit the new vehicle (bolt pattern/offset/caliper clearance)? Will the working diameter of the tire be similar?
what is the bolt pattern on a 2014 2.5i Forester rim and what is the bolt pattern on a 2002 Forester, and are they interchangeable. Thanks much!
Hi,Julie,The bolt pattern is 5*100 and it can interchangeable.

Hi,Ahmed,The offset for them are 45mm.it is not a problem.And For the bolt pattern,Impreza have two size,one is 5*100 and another is 5*114.3,Before fit the wheels,you need also confirm it.

Hi, There's some great info in here! I have a 2012 forester. What is the largest tyre size you can put on the car? Is it better to add spacers to go a little wider? Regards
Subaru Forester XT Premium AUDM - tou have listed that the 225/55 R17 load rating is 98V. However the standard tyres are Yokohama GEOLANDAR G95A, which are 97V. I am struggling to work out which is the correct load rating I should target. Please investigate and update your site accordingly.
Hi,Damon,The 225/55/17 loading rating is 97V,not 98v.We will update the data.

Hi. Can I use rims from a 2008 Subaru Outback on my 2012 Subaru Forester. My winter tires are 255/55 R17 and rims were taken from tires with the same measurements. Just not sure if there is anything else I should be aware of.
Only difference Isee is j vs jj
Hi,Liz,If all rims and tires are same except j and jj,You you do not need to worry about it.Because j and jj is the wheel structure code.if rims were tabken from tires,they are compatible.
Thanks for your reply. I just realized that the aspect ratio is different. 55vs60. Will this affect the potential rim swap?
Thanks for your reply. I just realized that the aspect ratio is different. 55vs60. Will this affect the potential rim swap?
Hi,liz,you'd better show aspect ratio 60 tire size,I can help you confirm it.
Thanks. My tires are 225/55/R17 and rims are on 225/60/R17. Offset and bolt pattern are the same.

I have 2 questions. 1. can I run the 01 wheels (I have separate set of winter tires/wheels for it) on the 07? or 2. I have a 2012 set of wheels (7JJx17 ET48, with TPS) that I can purchase winter tires for and mount those on the 07. Which is preferable?
Hi,Chris,For your questions,1.yes,you can use 01 outback wheels on 07 outbacks if both wheels are stock wheels.2.You can also use 2012 set of wheels on 07 outbacks,They have same size on stock rims.

2003 subaru forester sg 2.0x model
Hi, I have 2010 forester with stock wheels. It says 215/65-16 should be on them but I'm running 225/60-16. Am I okay with the smaller tires?
Hi,Rick,Yes,these two tires are compatible.
Thanks- I appreciate your help
Couple questions:1. Were the replacement options listed mounted on vehicles and known to fit or are they based on the calculator?2. For the USDM Subaru Forester 2019, there are limited options for a 19x8 wheel. Do you think a 19x8.5 wheel would work? Would that work better with a 245/45R19 or 255/45R19 tire?
Hi,Tegat,1.it based on other car owners which we collected.2.For 2019 Forester,you can try 19*8.5,For tires,both 245/45/19 and 255/45/19 is compatible.But 245 is stock tires,255 will make your car real speed faster than speed monitor.
Thanks for the response. Regarding 245 vs 255: The 255 has a 1.5% higher overall diameter compared to stock (not so good) but maintains the same stock scrub radius (good). The 245 has almost the same overall diameter as stock (good) but adds a +3mm scrub radius compared to stock (not so good). The calculator says a +3mm scrub radius is almost no difference. I don't know what the stock scrub radius is but assuming it's reasonable, maybe +3mm won't make a difference.Given that info, is one preferable than the other?
...not sure on what’s the best / biggest / widest / maximum tires or rims will fit your car?
Write about the tires you are currently driving on.
