    Need a few tire suggestions!

    I'm about to replace the stock tires on my '11 WRX and im in need a few suggestions. Im looking for a good, reasonably priced all season tire that performs well in snow.

    Any and all suggestions are welcome and appreciated!

    Honestly, no A/S tire "performs well" in snow.

    Are dedicated sets out of the question?

    I have two sets also. I used to have all season tires, but they were absolutely terrible in the snow and not that great in the summer either.

    All seasons are awful in the snow, but if you absolutely must have an all season for snow pick up something siped, soft, and with deep treads. The Goodyear Eagle F1 got a good snow review from Tirerack, with the Michelin Pilot Sport AS coming up on a close second.

    You're going to hate them in the summer, though. Keep that in mind.

    I had hankook v4 and v12s on my s4 and i had no complaints about either of them, i would say the v12s were a touch better in the snow.

    V12s are summer tires. They are completely insuitable for winter use.
