The stock tire size for my 2003 outback h6 is 225 60 16. Would I be okay running 215 65 16. Or would I risk scraping the sides? I believe the diameter is approx two fifths an inch larger in the 215s.

you might have trouble with chain clearances in the wells (don't know for sure - I know that going from 195/60-15 to 205/60-15 is a problem on the Imp. they run down the road just fine but cable chains hit the wells)

Not sure what you mean by chain clearances?

 

The exact diameter on the stock tires is 26.62 inches, where as the 215/65's would be 27.00 inches. Has anyone run 215/65/16's on there outback before?
