    07 wrx Tr accident :(-now I need new tires

    anybody have any idea as to what tires i should get??? i just got in a minor accident in my 07 wrx tr and basically one rim and tire is all screwed up... im pushing the collision repair shop to replace all 4 tires because i've heard that if one tire is heavier than another it will mess with the differential? what tires should i put on those stock rims.... i dont really want a winter tire i want best performance for all year around??? also what brake pads should i get? im going to attempt to do it myself... any thread tutorials on 07 wrx brake change??? Please help love this site, i will become a supporter if i get any good help. Thanks!!!

    Ok since you live in cali in the valley, snow rating probably isnt a problem. I like the Falken FK452's I have on my car. Also like the new line of Maxxis tires.

    totally didnt click my easy button. This thread needs moving.

    Be patient.

    I moved the thread as it didn't really fit in tutorials.

    Tires: please check out www.tirerack.com and do a comparison there. Probably one of the better sites for selecting tires.

    Pads: Lots out there to select from. Check the modification forum for some recommendations.

    How to change pads: The 07 shouldn't be any different from the previous years, so just do a search in the tutorials, find a pad change thread, and use it.

    It would really be a good idea to put a little effort into your research rather than relying on others to do it for you. Waaaay more satisfying and you'll learn a thing or two in the process.
