Wow, I can't imagine how you got the 21 to fit on an Outback! I just mounted the 16s to my Outback and even mounted as far forward as possible, it BARELY fits without hitting the trunk spoiler:




SO MUCH space in there though, I love the thing.

At Jay Peak VT, the 21 cf monster is sitting at REI in Pittsburgh ready for pick-up. Amozon has a cool system. Enter your car, it spits out if it fits. It said it will fit.

Those tires are pretty badass and I get why they're so wide being amphibian...but wonder how they actually do in the snow? From all I've read/researched on tires for snow performance, it's said narrow is better. Narrow=slice through snow; wide=push/plow through snow (hence less traction).

I switched over to an AT tire this season and wanted to go wider but didn't for that reason. Those snow pics are making me question that now...looks like the Wildflowers Smasher is getting traction on snow just fine.
