Hi All,
First post here and I appreciate all the interesting threads that have helped us with our new Ascent (especially the cargo area lighting upgrades).

I have an opportunity to use a set of wheels off a 2017 Outback on our 2020 Ascent. I would install winter or all-terrains on them that are appropriate for the Ascent. Here's the specs I've found so far that suggest they won't fit but would appreciate confirmation either way. Thanks.

Concerns: (1) clearing calipers (2) rim width (3) load rating

Specs from:
Outback: Subaru Outback 2017 - Wheel & Tire Sizes, PCD, Offset and Rims specs
Ascent: Subaru Ascent 2020 - Wheel & Tire Sizes, PCD, Offset and Rims specs

Hi, the load ratings in the chart are for tires, not wheels. Subaru's wheel manufacturer says the only OEM Subaru wheel that's designed to carry the Ascent weight is the Ascent wheel, and absolutely no other OEM wheel.

Sorry for the bad news.
