Out on the road today, it’s hard to drive far without seeing an Outback. In fact, Subaru vehicles in general have become very popular amongst outdoor enthusiasts, as well as families. With the generous cargo capacity, all-time AWD and off-road performance, this vehicle is going to be in your garage for several years. But when it’s time to replace the vehicle’s tires, what are your best options? Using the 2014 Outback 2.5i as an example (with Original Equipment Continental ContiProContact tires that aren’t listed high in our consumer ratings and reviews), we offer five options that are our “Best Sellers” to consider when it’s replacement time.
- General Grabber AT 2
- Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S
- Firestone Destination LE 2
- Michelin Defender LTX M/S
- Michelin Premier LTX
Driving in winter conditions? The all-wheel drive capability of the Outback is one of the more appealing features to consumers. Combine this power with a set of winter tires, and you have a machine Mother Nature can’t hold back. In the O.E. size, drivers can choose between several winter tire options. You can’t go wrong with the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 as it sits in the number one spot in the Studless Ice & Snow (Light Truck) category. The tire receives high marks in almost every rating including light snow traction, deep snow traction and ride quality. There are also two new options this winter to consider, the Continental WinterContact SI and Pirelli Ice Zero FR. Take a look at what drivers are saying about their experience with the WinterContact SI. And stayed tuned for updates on the Ice Zero FR as the reported miles come in.
Own an Outback but drive a different model? Or is your Outback equipped with different size tires? No problem. Shop by vehicle or by size to view all options available. Regardless if you take the vehicle off the beaten path or use it for transporting your family, choosing the best tires will make your Outback experience that much better!
