These are the OE tires on my Outback, and I already know I will replace them with the same model when it's time. I've had a Subaru before, and several 4WD trucks, but have never had a vehicle track like this one does in the snow. It's like having a 28 MPG tank at my command. We've had a lot of snow in the past couple of weeks and I am astounded at how this vehicle and tire combination shrugs it off. I am not an overly aggressive driver, but I can safely move faster in snow-covered lanes than other vehicles do on the mostly clear ones. I'm (almost) looking forward to more snow so I can these boys out there again, this time looking for especially difficult driving to see how they do. I am also surprised how well this vehicle rides over rutted unpaved roads and potholes, but I'm not sure whether I should credit the tires or the Subaru suspension. I suppose it doesn't matter. The combination makes for the best riding vehicle I've ever had when it comes to really crappy roads.
