    I hate to say this, but that's by far my least favorite pale ale

    I'm an IPA fan though, and the SA PA just doesn't have enough hops for me

    Avery Brewing (in Boulder) does free 4pm tours tues-fri and 2pm sat/sun, and has a pretty good restaurant with tap house... That'd be a fun meet. And under 21 can still come, they just can't have any brew.

    AWD doesn't mean crap if you don't have any ground clearance.

    AWD also doesn't mean crap if you don't have some good tires to go with it.

    This is what happens when you try to run summer tires in the winter here:



    Even AWD won't save you. It ceases to be All Wheel Drive and becomes All Wheel Slide!

    That seems really high. For winter wheels you might as well pick up the cheapest used stockers you can find and put some nice snow tires on them. You can find 02-03 stockers for 100-150 and spend 500-600 on nice tires and have a great setup.

    Even brand new wheels with winter tires from tirerack are like 900 mounted.

    Oh yes indeed. I was scared poopless. Couldn't stop no matter what I did. Came THIS CLOSE to about 2 wrecks, one of which would have involved me getting T-boned by a semi truck.

    I'm lucky. Learned my lesson though. I would have taken any 2WD car in the world if it had snow tires at that moment.

    That picture of my broken rim happened when I was just trying to turn left from a stop sign in my neighborhood. Went smacking into a sidewalk at about 5-10mph... lol

    wow, I feel bad for you man. that pic of your rim looks like it took quite the hit.

    One might say that the cost of winter tires easily pay for themselves by avoiding an accident or worse. Still though even winter tires won't save one from black ice, they just will help.

    Winter tires for Denver?

    Hey everyone!

    I just bought an '09 WRX 4-door and am super excited! I just found (and joined) this site today and looking forward to learning from the experts.

    My question relates to winter tires. (Sorry if it's already been addressed already!) Given the summer performance tires I have now, the consensus seems to be that winter tires are a good idea, especially since I got this car so I can go skiing in the worst weather. But what do I buy? Winter driving is not an issue for me (I grew up in ND), and mountain driving is not a problem given that I've lived in Denver for 13 years. I heard that true snow tires will not last long here due to the lack of snow in the city. I'm not really thinking of racing the car; I just want something that will let me get up I-70 on a big powder day -- and have fun doing it!

    Does anyone have some specific suggestions? Also, is it worthwhile to get a second set of rims as well? Is this just for ease of changing or is there some other reason?

    Thanks for the help!

    I have blizzak snow tires. they are super good in the snow and are lasting me pretty good. i would suggest getting another set of wheels too. it just makes it sooo much easier to switch out the sets in winter and summer.

    Here are my tires...

    Have you seen any of the last few snow storms? Maybe it doesn't last more than a few days, but if you plan on going anywhere during those few days, I would highly advise getting snow tires. See my post earlier in this thread of my broken rim. That's what happens when you have summer tires

    Also, is it worthwhile to get a second set of rims as well? Is this just for ease of changing or is there some other reason?
    Ease of changing, yes. Overall saving money too, since you don't have to pay a shop to mount your new tires every season. This is good if you plan on keeping the car for a long time.

    Also, I don't know what size the stock rims are on the 09, but if you ever decide to upgrade to a larger rim, you will have trouble finding cheap snow tires. That's why it's good to just get a set of cheap snow tires for the stock rims and put your nice summer tires on the new rims, should you ever buy them.

    are those stockers powdercoated or painted? They look really good.
