I was looking at the Kuhmo Rally tires. I noticed that they do not come in 195/60-15 which is the OE size for Subies. They do, however come in 195/65-15 which is slightly taller profile.Has anyone used these tires, or found a more suitable size? I like the Kuhmos because seem like a great value, but I don't want to spend the cash if I wear all the tread off on my fender. Thanks is advance.

i have R700s in 205/65/15 and they kick ass. OMG, they are so much fun on gravel. they give an amazing amount of grip. BTW, these are mounted on 15x7 Raceline 7's. very fun tire.

Yep, thats what i'm running. I drive on them every day and they are great. The 205 clears everything with no problem. Let me know If you come across anyone that has them instock, I need 1or 2 of them right now and Tire Rack is out and waiting on the next container.

damn, TMRRALLY, you are hardcore. i wouldn't want to drive them on the street. by 30mph it sounds like you have a jet turbine attached to the car and its up to full thrust :) and while is was amazed at how little they wore even though they did a number of miles on tarmac (at the speed limit, not pushing), i would imagine they wouldn't last too long. how are yours holding up? also, have you driven them in the snow?

I know they are out of 175/65-14 also we need 3 more for the steamboat club rally.

there are none in the usa till november.

We are ordering ours from canada there a little bit more per tire and 185/65-14 but a little wide is better then no tires.

I love the way they sound, but I could see it bugging some people. So far I have about 6 months or more on the tires. I drift on tarmac every chance I get, and they are holding up very well except for the pass. side front. I really need to get the car all aligned.
