Lifted Subaru Tire Size Chart (BAK)

We have been getting a lot of questions about what tire size one can run on their lifted Subaru lately so we've compiled a list of verified tire sizes on different cars in the RalliTEK shop. We have 2 different columns, one is the standard size that we will tell anyone that they can run and then the other column is for an aggressive fitment.

NOTE: The aggressive fitment column usually comes with the potential for minor trimming, cutting/flattening of a pinch weld, not being able to run front mud flaps or at the very least, using a heat gun to melt the inner fender out of the way of the tire.  This guide is just a reference, there are a lot of variables that can affect fitment. Please refer to you local wheel and tire dealer for confirmation. 

Tire sizes with an * next to them are our preferred choice of wheel and tire size for sidewall height, tire selection, and offroad use.
