    All Season tires

    I am buying a 2013 WRX. I live in the midwest and will need a set of all season tires. I need some advice on tires that have done well with this car. Any and all ideas appreciated.

    I use Toyo Extensa HPs. They're not the best tires and it gets pretty fun to drive in the snow. I'd say go to Tire Rack's website and read the reviews.

    Hey, I work at America's/Discount Tire Tire Company and in my experience the Continental extreme contact dws is one of the best options out there. Its affordable and gives you great traction. I personally drive two sets of tires though. I drive Dunlop Star specs in the summer and michelin x-ice IIs in the winter. But I drive my car pretty hard in the summer and need the sticky tire. Let me know if you need help choosing, I'd love to help. Also check to see if there is a Discount Tire store near you because you'll get the best price. If not go to Discounttiredirect.com if the price isn't already the best you can call us and we'll beat whatever price you've found.

    Are you against dedicated summer/winter sets?

    I would recommend this. Good all seasons have decent dry/wet and snow traction, but they are not great at either.

    I've been using Conti's for a while, and have nothing but good to say about the Extreme DWS tires. My father uses them on his RX-8, and I just purchased a set for my '12 WRX. I love them and can't wait to see how the Subie does with them on this winter.

    I also just bought a set of Conti DWS's for my 2012. The guy that talked me into them said he's on his 2nd set of DWS'S for his 04 WRX wagon. My wife has ran Conti's on her Audi year round and they haven't given us any trouble in snow or summer. I can't wait for it to snow so I test them out.

    I put Conti DWS on my Outback Sport and it was the best tire buy ever. Usually, I just feel raped after getting new tires. I look forward to the day I can get rid of the stock summer performance (WTH Subaru? summer perf on an awd car is only good for sun belt and Cali??? Why you hate me, and maybe about half the country???) and put them on my WRX. As with all all seasons they may not be exceptional at snow or summer but the DWS feel great year round. A bit squishier but I doubt you will be tracking All seasons...

    In a perfect world, where I had the cash and the floorspace in my garage I would love to do summer winter sets because once it snows here, and it will only once or twice, my WRX is going to be parked until it melts. Summer tires in winter suck so much.

    And the irony of parking an AWD vehicle because of snow does not escape me.
    Not as many parts left over this time... what am I missing?

    IMO it's the best solution. Why spend money on something that is okay at everything, but not great at anything?
