Ya I thought you where close.

Im hoping to fit at least 215/75R15 with an OD of 712
but I would really like 225/75R15 with an OD of 719
If I'm correct the standard are 205/70R15 with an OD of 669

If I got my calculations are right the springs and the 225/75 tyres would give me 2"s of lift.
not bad.

well it would make your tyres 2" taller but only lift the car 1" cos the other 1" of tyre would be up the top just taking up space...  but 1" is still a fair bit :)

rodger did you only glance at his above post? he hope's 1" from tyres and at least 1" from the springs, will give a combined height of around 2" :)

angle grinder and hammer. That's all you need for bigger tyres...

I went down Grand Junction rd to that tyres place " you know that yellow place " because I found that I had two different size tyres ( 70/75series) so I wanted to even the car out. Iwas hoping to pick up two 205/75-15 but that size is uncommon and I wouldn't want uncommon tyres  haha So I got these bad boys

205/70-15 Bridgestone Winter Duellers  Im goning back to get the rest of the tyres changed they are a little noisy.

What do you reckon?

Decent looking tyres. Should be good on gravel and sand for sure.

Make sure all tyres are within 3% difference with an AWD Subaru. Any more can put extra strain on the centre VLSD causing heat and premature wear. And I don't mean work out the difference using the rated sizing (i.e. 205/70R15) I mean measure with a tape measure or something. Those sizes veary so much from company to company, tyre model to tyre model. Hell, with MT's the tread is so deep worn ones can be a fair bit smaller then new ones...
