205/60R16 on 2011 Impreza
« on: January 13, 2016, 08:37:37 PM »
Hey guys.

Just curious on if anyone has run a 205/60 in a winter tire instead of the 205/55.  It looks like it should fit OK, and I figure having a little extra sidewall is good for winter potholes. 

I have a 2011 Impreza, just didn't know if there was any rubbing anywhere.

Well, almost a year later I wanted to post back for anyone else who ever searches and finds this thread...

Got a set of Conti WinterContact SIs in the 205/60 on sale last spring, and have been running them for a few months.  Fit just fine, no rubbing or issues with clearance on an all stock suspension.  I actually like how the bigger diameter changes the gearing somewhat, and to me it makes the car more enjoyable to drive.

Got any pics of them on the car?

You should check/recalculate your gas mileage.  I bet it increased, even once you factor the bigger tire diameter in.
