Get the Right Tires for 2005 Subaru Forester

Buying new tires can be easy and quick, especially when you're equipped with quality information from the tire experts that know! That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  2005 Subaru Forester. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the tire shop of choice for Subaru Forester tire options. Whether you want a tire that's built to improve fuel economy, take tight corners, or handle off-road terrain, you'll find good tires that match your budget.

View Subaru-recommended tires for your 2005 Forester, plus important information about Subaru Forester tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Apart from finding the right tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Subaru Forester tires like how and where you drive, and how much you want to spend. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. In Colorado, though, there's a good chance you'll want Subaru Forester snow tires for a good portion of the year, and maybe even all-season tires for year-round comfort and versatility.

Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. It's one of the best ways to maximize their Subaru Forester's safety and performance from January to December. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy challenging the limits of your Subaru Forester? Hitting the road less traveled? If you're an avid off-roader who yearns to pioneer new paths, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't hit the hills very often. You'll want tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability in uneven road conditions. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Subaru Forester tire that offers a smooth, quiet ride might be exactly what you need. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your vehicle. You're only a few clicks away from finding the right 2005 Subaru Forester tire for your needs.

The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1900 in Akron, Ohio by Harvey Firestone. He was a passionate inventor from the start.

2005 Subaru Forester Tire Questions

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Subaru Forester tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Why check Subaru tire inflation? The right tire inflation helps increase fuel economy, improve braking time, and boost tire lifespan! The right tire pressure can make all the difference. Even a small change in tire pressure can impact your driving.
  • What do the numbers on my Subaru Forester tires mean? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Is there an easy way to check Subaru tire tread depth? All you need is a penny. Hold the penny so that Abraham Lincoln is facing you, then place your penny into a tread groove upside down. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Subaru Forester tires.
