Question Help the tire/wheel newbie?

I have stock 205/60-115 on my 98 Outback Sport (stock suspension). Can anyone see any clearance or other issue by going to 205/70-15 winter tires from a 2001 Forester? Yep, the speedo will be off but I can calibrate the scangauge to compensate.

Trying to decide on a reasonably priced winter wheel/tire setup.

Yes or No ?

Thanks all. Jon

Edit: Well, just called a tire place (Firestone), no issued except maybe if I hit a hole/bump on a turn they might rub. Time for Forester Struts then. Thanks.

According to the Miata tire calculator, there's about .8 inch difference in radius between the two. Do you currently have an extra inch of clearance between your tires and body?

that depends how close I'm standing...but seriously, Yeah, there's probably a couple inches between the rubber and plastic.

edit: btw, they are studded Winter Kings on 14 holers so if the tires don't work out I have the steelies at a decent price.

thanks jon
