I beat him by a few hours. :grin:Nice looking ride. Is this the first post to show up with custom wheels on an Ascent?
I noticed you got the 245/65/17 tires (29.5" diameter total) ... If you're to push the diameter to be larger - let's say 31" - would it rub (assuming using same rim)?I beat him by a few hours. :grin:
So, within just a few hours apart, one got to see what's probably the absolute beefiest tires with the same circumference as stock on the absolutely smallest possible rims - as well as what's probably the absolutely largest rims with the smallest possible tires. :smile:
Jeremy Needham in the Facebook Ascent group has bigger tires, but not that much bigger (30", IIRC) and they are not rubbing. It does enable using stock 18" rims, but it also throws off the speedometer by a few miles per hour at highway driven speeds. At worst, a 1" lift would allow enough clearance.I noticed you got the 245/65/17 tires (29.5" diameter total) ...

Would you guys consider putting in OEM 18in STi wheels with beefier tires for the Ascent. I have this idea to keep everything "Subaru" lol. Plus, it would probably look really nice the Ascent would have STi wheels. Anyway, just wanted to get opinions on this or if this is even possible. TIA
Sure. On a bump or hard corner, they shatter or explode into pieces or shards, you potentially rip off the hub, you possibly lose control of the car, and you do some serious damage to the car, and hopefully not to you.What are possible consequences if an Sti wheels put in a Subaru Ascent? Could you give some examples. Thanks
