    New Tires? Any Recommendations?

    I have a 2004 Subaru WRX - all original at this point and need to purchase some new tires on a relative budget. I was looking for any recommendations for a set of all season performance tires in the $500-$700 range for daily (of course aggressive) driving. I was currently considering the Continental ExtremeContact and Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position. Any suggestions?

    i think you can pick up a set of summer tires for cheaper than 500... but like EJ257 asked, where do you live? cause if you really need the all-season tires than it shouldn't be too hard to find a decent set of all seasons. I know the falken 912's are pretty good all season tires

    For a/s, I recently got the Michellin Pilot Sport Plus A/S. They seem pretty good so far.

    Thanks for the input - I live in Missouri so there is a little rain throughout the year and 2-3 months of melting snow and ice, thus the reason for going for an all-season...I was also looking at the Eagle GT...

    My buddy had the Fuzion HRi's and said they were great and a great price. He was recommended them by a local guy he knows and decided to give them a try. Said they perform well in all conditions. He even tested them on snow and ice. I will most likely be ordering a set of these tomorrow when I get paid. Have been talking myself out of it because we might not get a lot of snow (haha yeah right).

    anyways, here is a link:

    Did you look at the surveys on the site? They get a not too bad 6.9 for light snow traction, but 5.9 for deep snow traction. I would think where you live you'd want a little better tire in the snow.

    There is always good and bad responses and I did see the charts on them. I'm just going off what a good friend had to say about the tires (he is a car nut). Basically any all seasons you look at have the same ratings for the conditions. These tires are inexpensive and supposedly handle real well. I'll think I will be ordering them tonight and once I have them on I'll let you all know what they are like (have some good, deep snow, parking lots right by my house).

    Look into the General Tire Exclaim UHP all season tire and the Toyo Proxie 4 all season. I have ran both of them before and both were good tires for the price. The only thing about the Toyo's was there was not an authorized dealer where I live, but other than that check them out.
