I just upgraded my '04 Quest to an '07 with the goods, and the trade in went with the snow tires. I have the original Goodyear Eagle LS-2 tires (4) with about 7,500 miles on them, so they are close to new. Size is 225/65/16. These things are crazy expensive if you want the same tire as a new replacement (about $130 each), all four go for $200. Long shot here, but figured I'd try since ebaying and shipping tires is so much fun :rolleyes:

I ran the 215/65/16 size in my Nokian Hakka Q winter tires, because the 225/65/16 was at the time only made in one tire for one vehicle (Eagle LS-2 on a Nissan Quest). Honestly never felt any difference. Mostly I think you'd be dealing with a slightly wider tire.

Let me know if you want some pics.

so the link Kevin posted told me this

215/65/16= 27"dia. 8.5" section width. 5.5 section hight

225/65/16= 27.5"dia. 8.9" width. 5.8" hight

not much difference. the 1/2" difference in dia is realy = to 1/4" from center?
and this would be so little it would not affect my gearing or speedo?

I noticed zero difference between running the 215 and 225 sizes on my Quest, but it is an admittedly bigger vehicle than a Forester. Your measurements look correct.

Terry, it will make a difference in gearing and speedo. You'll notice it more in the speedo than the gearing.

Column definitions

Circumference

The circumference of the tire.
Diameter

The diameter of the tire.
Difference

The percentage difference in size between the reference (first) tire and a subsequent tire.
Odometer

The reported odometer reading compared to the reference (first) tire. For example, if the reference tire is listed as <code>10000mi</code> and a subsequent tire is listed as <code>9500mi</code>, that means the subsequent tire will report 9500mi traveled when the vehicle actually traveled 10000mi.

Radius

The radius of the tire.
Revolutions

The number of times the tire rotates per mile or kilometer.
Sidewall

The sidewall height of the tire.
Specification

The tire specification as determined by the calculator.
Speedometer

The reported speedometer reading compared to the reference (first) tire. For example, if the reference tire is listed as <code>60MPH</code> and a subsequent tire is listed as <code>55MPH</code>, that means the subsequent tire will report 55MPH when the vehicle is actually traveling at 60MPH.

If Terry doesn't want these, I'll take 'em. We can use them on our Honda minivan.

Here's the pics.

I don't ever want to discourage a sale, but my feeling on this is these are better minivan tires than Subaru.

Do either of you want them now that you've seen the pics?

Let me check the minivan tires in the morning. They look like they have more than 7500 miles on 'em. Can you measure the depth of tread?

New is 10/32". Tires to go to front (were on rear) are 7/32 (lower edge of forehead on Mr. Lincoln turned upside down) and 6/32 on tires to go to rear.

I bought the van in August '04, put on snows in Oct and ran them through Jun, ran these Jul-Oct in '05, and in 2006 I left the snows on all summer because I was going to replace them...but they got me through the summer and another winter anyway...and the dealer took it with worn out snows.

I'll go $150 if you really want 'em.

OK, sounds like a plan. Will you be at the July 11 meeting?

I need to get up to a meeting...but my folks are in town that week. I'll drop you a note back channel to work it out...

OK, no worries. I don't need them tomorrow. Anytime this month is fine by me.
