A number of us have had no success in getting a second set of wheels due to clearance of the caliper (for the most part). Please post the make and model (skus would be great) of the wheels you have purchased, installed and are driving on so we can have one spot to check, along with a URL to the specific rims you have.

Specs we are told are:

Size 18 X 7.5
Diameter 18
Bolt Pattern (mm) 5-114.3
Offset (mm) 55 (Subaru OEM)
Load index

At this point, I just rotated the rubber on the existing OEM rims and working on returning my aftermarket rims from Envy - https://westerncanada.envywheels.com/wheel-specification?productId=nx42855

Also, if you look up your vehicle, then any of the wheels listed on the Discount Tire website are guaranteed to fit! :D
..and one shouldn't confuse "fit" with "work" or some other word. There was the one person on here who could "fit" wheels which were load rated for a WRX but no where near the load rating on the Ascent. Haven't seen any posts since then. I hope things are OK for him/her. Be a shame to spend all that money and be stuck with something that "fit" but didn't "work".

Anderson design lift kit 1.5 no issue with rubbing

Sorry for so many questions but I'd love to get a lift. I'm thinking of doing the 2" LP lift.

Any changes to your handling? Does it lean more in turns? With the larger diameter tires do you notice any decrease in acceleration? Any affect on gas mileage?

Did you get the CKE transmission bushing or the sway bar bushings?

Only thing I notice was a loss in mpg before I would average 24 now I’m down to 19 mpg no bushings installed just the lift and wheels
