Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S 215/60R16

Any idea if these will fit on an 08 OBS?

25" or less is wise. 215/60/16 is too tall (26.2"). That size won't fit. If you want 215 wide on a 16" rim, the size you're looking for is 215/50/16 (24.5") although you have very few tire choices in that size. 225/50/16 or 205/55/16 (24.9") are popular so there's a larger selection.

I believe you can fit 15"s over your brakes. Call Tire Rack. Note there aren't many tire choices in 15" anymore. You can find a decent selection of 205/60/15 (24.7"). I know the Goodyear Eagle GT is available (UHP A/S V rated) as well as the General Altimax HP (Grand Touring A/S H rated).
