Do not mix and match tires sizes as it will damage your AWD system.

The 225's are 2" larger than the 185's. More than 8% and not advisable, and since you have a Subaru and AWD, I would definitely not do it. Save up your money for correct tires sizes. Purchase some used ones there are shops that sell used tires.

Don't do it.....Sell that smart phone and get some proper sized tires.

You WILL blow up either or both the AWD transfer case and the rear diff...maybe even taking the whole 4EAT with it, for a true trifecta!
