All terrain tires

Asked by Sep 23, 2016 at 10:46 PM about the 2015 Subaru Impreza 2.0i Premium Hatchback

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2015 Subaru impreza sport wagon with 17" rims. I
was wondering if I can install basic R15 rims with all terrain
tires for the winter season?  Has anyone done it before if
so can you please help.

would advise against diverting from the prescribed size on the doorjamb...for a number of reasons...1.) the speedometer will be incorrect 2.) the handling would be different, because the suspension arms are of a non-resonant length (behaves harmonically different) 3.) the handling, may cause problems in an off-road situation (would not be designed for that)~

we used to have "studded" tires, in Milwaukee...but they chewed up the pavement such that driving on the road then became noisy like No pavement...these were made illegal~ most people have a set of Snow Tires that have the aggressive tred to get out of the snowbank~

You're both making this too hard...especially that "non-resonant length" nonsense. The non-Sport OE Imp wheels are 16", but even cheap 15" steel wheels fit...but use 195/65 to maintain OE height. 65's would be spongy handling, so I'd use 205/60 to maintain some meat on the road. But I'd prefer to use 16" alloys and chase OE 205/55-16 snows for all-purpose winter use. If you REALLY want aggressive studs for "all-terrain" then the 15" will work fine. Calibration error for ALL of these options is vanishingly small, btw, so relax and have fun.
