The 1st guy who comes to mind would be Mudrat, for fabrication... unless you have the know-how.
I also wouldnt recommend Alloy rims. You might want to check into some cheap steel rims which you can get in 15's too.

I think gearing would be a real issue with that setup. The fact the Subaru does not offer the D/R tranny in the US for the Forester is a huge limitation for modifying the Forester for any real off-road performance.
I'd think if you put the tires your talking about....you'd toast the clutch more or less instantly.
If it didn't toast instantly then it would the first time you try to climb any hill. Just for a test try climbing with your current gears and tires. ---My bet is your disappointed with the current setup too
My thoughts are unless you have geared it, keep it stock and on mild off-roads. The Forester is basically a snow car...
82 SubaruHummer---highly modified off-road vehicle
01 Forester---not an off-road vehicle
