What are the best off-road tires for the Subaru Outback?

I have a Subaru Outback that I want to retrofit with some upgraded tires, preferably ones that can take my off-road driving to new heights. What are the best off-road tires for the Outback?

You certainly have plenty of choices for off-road tires—enough that it can feel overwhelming. However, the best off-road tires for the
Subaru Outback
just might be a set of Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015s.
While these are technically all-terrain tires, the Yokohama Geolandars deliver excellent off-road prowess as well as on-road capability. Some of the top features of these tires that will have your Outback blazing new trails include:
  • 3PMSF-rated for wet and winter weather traction
  • EdgeTec grooves, which provide more bite when you’re turning on an uneven surface
  • Proprietary Enduro-Compound polymer that resists damage and increases the lifespan of the tires
  • 60,000-mile limited warranty
While you’re out having fun on the trails, it’s best to note that Geolandars are not a replacement for snow tires. Their tread pattern may be unbeatable on rough roads, but snow can get stuck in the grooves and cause your grip on the road to weaken.
To make sure you’re safe in the most unexpected of situations, add
towing and labor coverage
to your
car insurance
policy. This add-on will cover flat tires, oil changes, towing services, and more if you ever get stranded on an off-roading detour.
