+2 for the G015s. A good compromise for tar/gravel mix

Enjoy the trip and have faith in what the car can do. Remember tyre pressure and momentum.

Wheels, Tires and Brakes. / Wasted tires
« on: November 07, 2017, 05:47:04 PM »
I'm certainly far from an expert on this, but I believe that the newer Foresters have an open centre diff, so there is a small tolerance for wear between front and back.
I'd still be cautious though having wasted tyres on one end  and new ones other side.

Wheels, Tires and Brakes. / Yokohama GO15 size and feedback?
« on: August 31, 2017, 07:04:14 AM »
I replaced my G95s (225/60r17) with G015s when I managed to pick up some 16"rims.
Tyres size now is 215/65r16 so overall approx 2% smaller rolling diametre.
Not sure if you may have some rubbing issues at that size at full lock.
I'm happy with the tyres. A little more road noise than the older ones, but definitely manageable and not obtrusive inside.
Car handles a little differently, especially at highway speeds.
Gravel and sand handles sweetly.
More of a fishtail feeling around corners but I think it has to do with the higher sidewalls.
