If they're anything like the Geolanders (Yokohama's A/T tire), they're kinda noisy.

Hey guys I lifted my legacy pretty extensively about a year ago, it's quite a few pages back, white sedan with gold rims. Anyhow it was done with the 3 inch " body lift" which actually just drops the subframe and about a 5 inch suspension lift by using strut spacers that went on top of the strut. Well I have recently bought a forester and am going to lift it but would rather extend the struts similar to the Efi logic's forester so I can fit a bigger tire and not worry about hitting the coil spring mount. Anyone know how they extended the struts? Obviously weld pipe in but any information beyond that? Any information is appreciated - Chris

When I had the AT2s, they are somewhat noisy up to 35-45mph. At highway speeds, they are pretty quiet. I would say the "noisy" is about the same as having an uncatted exhaust. So with all the exhaust noise going on, the tires seem minor.

They hum at highway speeds, but I have a decently loud catless exhaust too so the tire noise just blends in with the exhuast drone.

^ Nice pics Logan!
looks like fun, I had to chicken out this past weekend as it was WAY rougher than described and I would have messed up my car, but I'll be ready next time.
At least I got to watch Paul in his 555 racecar, good stuff.

Thanks alot man, i had so much freakin fun, even tho i was fighting a blown head gasket lol once i get another dd (hopefully a '11 WRX , unless the new ones are good) i'll be stripping the leggy down to a full blown rally car and gonna start sourcing a ej205 or ej255/257 to swap into it.

Tell ya what man, im really missin AK, i really wish i was able to get into the subbie scene sooner up there.

Man retrac that thing is pretty built haha. I run the rebuilt/revalved STi struts paired with Kings on my wagon. One of the best bang for the buck gravel set up's for sure.

And yes to Evileye who answered the 555 were a cigarette company. This is back when it was to still kosher for tobacco companies to back motorsports teams. You don't see that anymore haha
