Nice tip.

I had mine replaced by panelbeaters, as they found it was broken after they worked on the car.

The OEM's are not so expensive anyway...
Suspension / 2007 Forester 2.5X rear shocks.

Ok, the rear shocks on my Forester is due for replacement. Does anybody know what replacement can be fitted as I am definitely not getting the shocks from Subaru. I am in the Bellville area if anyone knows where I can take the car to have the job done.

I got Geolandar G95 225/55/R17 all round and the spare is still mint so not as big a difference as your spare tyre situation.
I was thinking of trying something new but probably just worth getting the same tyres again.

Nice to know why, thanks for taking the time and explaining !

Main reason why you should not go high speed when driving with off size tire is because your center diff (one in gearbox) does not like large constant variation
So if you go fast (stated above 80 in manual) it increases heat build up in the gearbox which can lead to damage to center diff

As for which wheel to put it on that largely depends on how different your spare tire is
mine was 215/55R17 vs the hateful Michelin's road tires I had on that was 225/50R17 (won't fit those again ever)

So not massive difference but more than preferable by Gearbox
I had it fitted to front but if wildly off (like ultra thin spare) I would fit it to rear

I would have in any case preferred to fit to rear but it was hole in road issue and I damaged to 2 tires and had the left rear with tire plugs in the sidewall
So if I have a tire that might suddenly lose pressure I prefer rear for that as well so I left that one there and fitted the decent spare in front

So must have been quite a long 350km !
Great to know it is possible. Does it matter where the off size spare is fitted - Front or Rear ?
New to the fozzie so learning as i go.

The app gives the reading from the bluetooth dongle
Which pulls it from your ECU
So if th ECU is correct then it should also be correct
