    First subie

    What's going on Club WRX, just picked up my brand new 2013 WRB WRX this morning. Man does this car rule, I'm mostly a lurker and ill probably stick to the tri-state boards but I figured I would say hello! Just one question, exactly how bad are the factory tired in the snow.

    Don't worry, it's a Subaru. You'll get tired of it in about 5 minutes.

    Factory summer tires are no good in the snow. Going isn't as important as stopping... Get yourself some winter/snow tires if you expect to be driving in the snow at all.

    Welcome and congrats - yes you need winter tires - summers are really dangerous not just in snow but below 40 degrees or so you get a real drop0 in traction.

    The factory tires are terrible in the snow. Even in just a little "winter grease" on the roads you will slide all over and forget about stopping.
