Can I install 225/60R17 tires onto my 2007 outback that currently has 225/55R17?
I have a 2007 Subaru Outback. My current tire size is 225/55R17. Someone is selling his brand new tires off of a 2014 Forester that measure 225/60R17. Will there be a problem with the fit if I purchase? None of the tire places can tell me without actually putting the tire on.
The 60 is the profile of the tire, so the 60 is taller than the 55 by roughly half an inch. What does the tire place card say on your vehicle for tire size? They may rub the inner fender on turns or possibly the strut tower. Sorry I can't give you a direct yes or no. If I had to guess I would say that they would most likely fit.
Thank you for taking the time to respond. I called multiple service stations including the dealer. They all said they couldn't tell me without putting the tire on. Problem I have is that I would have to buy tires in order to do this.
You might try Tire Rack web site, see if they show a optional tire size. Might help
Thanks, I'll do that.
these tires "should" fit unless the car is lowered.but stock height still has about 1.5" of clearance.
Can I switch my 22560r17 tires to 23560r17
Also on a Subaru 2014 outback
That is only 1 size wider so it should not be a problem.
jamesstoll did you ever put the 225 60 17 tires on and did they work fine?
