All-Terrain Tires for Your Subaru Outback and BMW X3

While the new Subaru Outback, BMW X3 and other mid-size SUVs are built for limited off-road duty, the 17" wheels that come from the factory all but eliminate the possibility of getting tires up to the challenge. The Original Equipment tires on most of these vehicles are built for a quiet and comfortable ride, but leave some yearning for more snow and mud traction when roads get rough. Enter the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S in the 225/60R17 tire size for vehicles like the current generation Subaru Outback, BMW X3, Honda Element, Hyundai Tucson and older Toyota RAV4 models.

The Geolandar A/T-S features multi-stepped grooves and staggered center blocks to give multiple biting edges for great traction in loose dirt and wintry roads. Yokohama was sure to add aggressive sidewall protectors near the tire's shoulders to increase loose-surface grip while they help minimize sidewall cuts and abrasions from rocks, stumps and the occasional curb.

Our customer's reviews and survey results have been very positive, putting the Geolandar A/T-S in the top ten for the category. Even with impressive off-road capability, the tire is also tuned to provide long life and even wear. In the 225/60R17 size, Yokohama provides a strong 50,000-mile warranty for peace of mind.

Shop by vehicle to see if the Geolandar A/T-S is available for your SUV.

Unfortunately none of our vendors offer an All Terrain tread pattern in either 225/55R17 or the alternate 215/55r17 size. There may be options from other vendors, however, so don't give up your search !

The 225/60R17 is 1" smaller in diameter (or about 3.5% smaller in diameter) , so I would have some concerns that ABS / traction control may be affected (225/65R17 is a better size and we have the Geolandar AT-S in that size as well).

There is a very similar difference in diameter between the stock 225/60R18 and the 225/55R18 size you proposed, so the same concern about diameter would apply. Unfortunately there isn't a tire size that is closer in diameter that has any All Terrain options for an 18" wheel.
