    I've been looking heavily at the Potenza PPs as well, really like the look of them. They are pricey but they have a good tread pattern and like you said, they perform well in the summer. In all honestly my car is my DD and I don't plan on auto-xing or drag racing so I think an all season is the best bet for me.

    one of the factors for me too is that i live in an apartment, otherwise i'd have 2 sets dedicated for summer and winter. the other crappy thing is that the TPMS sensor would have to be dealer reset every time you swap out wheels, but i think there's a way to do it yourself on the STI

    Well as far as all seasons go, I plan on never running those. When I switched from the stock sport tires to my Blizzacks, the difference was felt before I even left the driveway with the blizzacks the first time. Even if all season are slightly better then winters, I still want all the summers have to offer, and I already have a set of winters and summers. I also have a spare garage next to my car garage where my brother sports bike, and some summer padio stuff is stored (and my summer rubber, but no wheels cuz I only got the OEM pair lol)



    As for as the 'H' on the wheel Tony, I had figured it came off, even if it didn't I'd paint it off or something lol.

    All seasons are meh...not really up there for performance, but not really the best in the winter. In bad winters in hilly North Jersey, I'd say Mike is going to want some dedicated winters.

    That does make sense though if you really do have limited space...and who cares about the TPMS

    actually TPMS helped me out once already. it lit up while i was on the highway so i pulled over to take a look and didnt see a flat. i checked the following morning again and still didnt see a flat. at work i borrowed my buddys gauge and pump and found that one of my tires only had 22PSI in it. i filled it back up to 35? or w/e the other 3 were at and took it to a tire shop during lunch. there was a nail in it.

    Yea, I need the winters because I also travel to Vermont and Vernon for snowboarding frequently. Also after having all the control Winters gave me in snow, I don't know if I'll ever steer away from winters, unless of course I get a crossover or SUV.

    I don't have the Nav, so I wouldnt know about that. I have an Idea tho, Since the COBB AP can run CEL's (AutoZone ran my CEL with something like the AP). This makes me think you can reset the TPMS. Some more knowledgable people around here can deff. help you out, post a thread about it and see what you come up with, I'm interested in this myself.

    Hmmm...only positive story about TPMS I've heard. That is legit. Avoided ruining a tire at that point (like I had done with mine at the end of last summer. Needed new tires anyway, so no biggy). I always just thought that they were another way for people to be too lazy to keep track of their own tire pressures

    You didn't notice one of the tires was flat from the way it drove? When mine went flat I drove 2 feet and was like, 'wait somethings wrong'

    But anyway, I want my Subi back!

    LOL the past decade or so none of my cars had tpms. i just went by looking at it and if it looked "low" i would check the pressure. i did suffer a blowout on the highway at one point on a 18x9.5 rear wheel on my 540i/6. it may have been prevented with TPMS.
