Nice action photos, and I like the paint scheme. Too bad it's a 2 door, though.

We have those wheels in gold - bet the gold would look good on yours.

65 series on a 215 is hardly any difference compared to a 60 series . . .

This seems a good place for some popular tire info...

I've been seeing different info and conflicting reports on various web sources (tire rack, discount tire direct, discount tires, general's website, etc.) regarding the snow rating on the Grabber AT2s. I run a set of 27x8.5 14's which are LT rated tires. They're AWESOME in the snow, studdable and rated "severe snow". Other popular sizes are 215x65 16 and 215x70 16, but these are not rated "sever snow tires' on severe sites.



So, I wrote an email inquiring on these differences. Here is my inquiry,



"Hello,

I am writing to get specific information regarding the Grabber AT2. I have a set on my Subaru (a modified and lifted sedan running the 27x8.5 14" grabber AT2). I've noticed conflicting information in retailers and the General site regarding labeling and capabilities of this tire.

I see that my tire size (27x8.5 14") is listed as an LT, is severe snow rated and studdable. On Tire rack (and the General site) I see the 216x65 and 215x70 (all for 16" rims)
are NOT listed as severe snow rated, nor LTs. Discoint tire direct lists the 215x65 and 215x70 as severe snow rated AND studdab On Tire rack (and the General site) I see the 215x60, 216x65 and 215x70 (all for 16" rims) are NOT listed as severe snow rated, nor LTs. Discounttiredirect.com lists the 215x65 and 215x70 as severe snow rated AND studdable. Thus there is advertised conflicting information out there."



And the official reply I received is as follows:


"This is to certify that all sizes of the General Grabber AT2 attain a superior snow traction performance that meets the requirements given in the "Rubber Manufactures Association definition for passenger and light truck tires for use in sever snow conditions" (RMA Information Service Bulletin Volume 37 / Number 2, February 1999). All version of the AT2 are studable, and can be used in sever winter condition; however, only the Light Truck, (LT), version of the tires were submitted for the testing."


SO there we have it, ALL grabber AT2s are sever snow rated!!! YES!!

Definitely Speedline 2118, but I'm going to take a guess that they are 15x6.

They come with 225/55/17. Right now I'm running a 215/60 with a 1" SS lift on King spring and KYB struts and shocks.

AFAIK, 225/60 is the biggest you can run, however, with a lift, I'd like to see if I can go a little bigger.

I bought one tire and test fitted it front and rear before I committed to the whole set a week later. I had access to a tire machine and lift.

Get friendly with a tire shop.

Hey guys, I'm looking to raise my 2012 premium model impreza. I was looking at the subtle solutions spacers but am unsure of to which size to get. I don't think I need the 1" lift or how I should go about at sizing them up so the car is still level. Any help would be great.

-James

Edit: I do not rally or do anything of the sort. I am looking to lift the car so I can get through some trails and mountain roads that I take.
