Can I swap my 225/60 R17 tires to 225/55 R17 on my 2012 Subaru Outback?

Asked by Guru6NL4N Mar 25, 2020 at 01:06 PM about the 2012 Subaru Outback

Question type: General

I need 4 all season tires.  A friend has 4 slightly used 225/55 R17 tires she'll give me.  Will they work on my 2012? If so, what are the pros and cons of using them? Thanks.

They will work. Cons: lower profile means rougher ride and speedometer will read wrong, it will show faster than you actual speed. Pros: they are free.
