Check on your right side steering stalk
I know on the XT it has light adjustment that allows you to increase the dash lights so you can see the dash better

Picture shows a car place in Joburg

Happened to go look at a car there about 2 years ago
Car looked fine on outside but when I opened the bonnet it had a nice hole drilled through a section of the radiator so they could have nylon plastic rope rope run through it to keep the radiator that was bent in place.

Car was obviously in bad smash and had external damage cosmetically fixed
Anyone who knew anything about cars would not have taken it
But they obviously work on the few people who knows nothing to buy cars there

Hi Stefmau

it will be more for tar and little bit gravel for now.
So there will be no real advantage of increasing tyre size, then i'll stick with the 16's
Thanks for your input!

Where do you plan on going with the car?

I went down in size from 17s to 16s for several reasons:
Better deflation for sand
A higher sidewall gives more comfort on gravel
16s are quite a bit cheaper than 17s
More tyre options available in 16

Ive found that the G015s are pretty quiet on tar and give good predictable grip. On gravel they excel.

Hi Guys

I am new to the forum and would greatly appreciate your feedback.
I have taken ownership of a Subaru Forester 2.5 XS Premium CVT 2014, which has 16inch Rims with 215/70 R16 Geolanders on which are noisy as hell!
I have seen that the 2014 originally came out with 17's, so the 16's must not be stock, although are Subaru rims.
Is it worth trying to source Subaru 17' rims and then sell the 16's or should i just get new 16' tyres?

Thanks guys!

I wanted to go slightly bigger, but spare would no longer fit in wheel well. Ended up with the gt grabbers, seem to be fine.
