Just purchased new 2011 WRX in Metallic Grey. Overall performance is great, only downside is the stereo. I am from Toronto, Ontario and as you may or may now know, winters are traditionally snowy and cold. After our first recent snowfall, I took out the beast for a leisure run. Being negligent regarding stock summer tires (I picked up my car 5 days ago), it was very slippery and while braking, the ABS brakes were terrible, making hard crunching noises and hard to stop. Called Subaru and they said it's normal with summer tires for the ABS to react in such a manner. Now I was always planning on getting winter tires, but don't want to sacrifice too much look/performance and or wallet gouging. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any reply.
