The after picture actually appears like the vehicle now has a more matte finish, too. :)

^ DGM has quite a bit of blue in it, according to the eyes of a few artists that I know. My mom took all of the artistic genes out of this side of the family tree, so I was, like, 🤔👀🤷‍♂️

...until I saw the clone to my DGM Touring (I went from a '19 CBS to a '21 DGM in September) just a few days ago, when I first thought it was a rather nice shade of blue....... 😅.

At least in my eyes, depending on lighting and angles, DGM can appear quite blue.

Confirmed fitment for the 17”x8”+38 fifteen52 Traverse MX. Tires are 245/65r17 Falken Wildpeak AT3W. Load rating of 1834lbs. No rubbing, so far.

Big thanks to the local @Discount Tire for test fitting and contacting fifteen52 directly to confirm fitment.

Time to delete the chrome and debadge.

Any issues with the setup since the install? Where did discount tire put the wheel weights?

Thank you for pointing this out @charlie_mike!

I'm not sure why the 18" Voxx Nova is not displaying on the website; there's definitely no fitment issues as @Reubenmc has outlined.
Thank you for confirming! Discount Tire found the Voxx Nova’s in 18x8 and here they are with Wildpeak A/T in OEM 245/60/R18. Great service!

@Discount Tire did KMC stop making the 708's in 18inch sizing? I've finally worn out the factory tires and could use an upgrade. I've used Discount tire on my last three cars and you guys are always awesome. Would love to downsize a bit since the 20's don't absorb midwest potholes all that well.

I'm pretty sure that Subaru needs to just buy the rights to the KMC 708 and make it a factory aftermarket, but does look SO good.
A little jealous of the 265's on previous post, but here's my baby with the 245/60/18 Terrain Contact A/T's and bully wheels. Chrome delete next.
I love the Continentals.....
KMC 708 gang lol! How are you liking the A/T on normal every day use? Probably pick up a set in the same size after my current tires are worn.

Unfortunately these wheels have been discontinued. Thank you for sending the PM, we look forward to working with you and earning your business.

I put in a ton of time on the discount/america's tire site and finally, finally selected the Voxx Monte's...then discovered they only ship to their own stores, of which there are none anywhere near me. This is true right? There's no way to ship to my address or an independent tire shop in my area?

Not thrilled with Tirerack either. They let me add things to my cart and then tell me I can't actually buy them anymore once I enter my shipping area and try to check out. Plus they have figured out how to monopolize google search results so it's hard to find any other vendors, to the point they actually have fake sites (not joking!) that come up mixed in with the all-tire-rack search results, and sure enough you can go to these sites and browse products, but then when you dig deeper they just redirect you to tirerack.
for example: A New Set | Reviews on Tires and Wheels for Cars, Trucks, SUV'S and MirgoShop
When you try to add wheels to your cart, poof, welcome to tirerack!
I mean, respect for gaming the system I guess, but wow that's some next level shady and makes me want to shop anywhere other than tirerack TBH.

@SierraEast, Discount/Americas Tire bought Tire Rack ....
OMG. Monopoly complete.
Also, just discovered DiscountTireDirect apparently is the portal to have tires shipped to an arbitrary address. Have not successfully completed the order yet. The site says I need to call and talk to a human on the telephone to see if I can actually get the Voxx Monte someday. I know, I know esteemed Mr Mauro, the Monte is listed as only 1650 lb load rating, but frankly I don't believe that's correct. Nor do I believe I'm ever going to break it. As much as I wish I was a rally driver, my off-roading is normally of the slow and steady variety, avoiding the sharp rocks that the ground is made of where I live. But this is getting off topic. This thread is for successful tire/rim purchases. Let's see some more!

It's legal, by two pounds, so, there's that going for them, lol. Subaru may like their safety margins, but that doesn't mean you have to.

Anyway, if you can't get them, I'd consider the Liquid Metal Shift, which is very similar, and has an 1,800 pound load rating. Discount Tire sells them as well, and they come in a few different colors.

Ironic story... every wheel I've ever cracked or bent has been on road, on potholes or curbs. ;)
