    All weather tires

    Hey guys just wondering if there's a decent all weather tire out there, gonna buy a set of wheels but I want to get all weather tires and not have to spend money on a winter set up. Any inquiries appreciated thanks!

    I assume you are on summer only tires? All season tires are a compromise, being merely adequate to good when the weather gets extreme. Whereabouts do you live?

    If you are getting a second set of wheels, get dedicated winter shoes. Well worth the extra expense.

    ^ +1 these cars are tanks in snow with the winter set up, Blizzaks have done me well. I've heard great things about nokian, but they're expensive.

    Yep, quality dedicated tires for summer and winter will far surpass the all season in all seasons. I've had more than a few makes / models of all 3 categories of tires on my bought new 2004 WRX. All seasons do not cut it for any performance car. Tires are one thing not to skimp on for safety sake.

    Good summer tires let you experience all the WRX is capable of.

    My personal choice was for two sets of wheels and tires, but if you insist on one set,

    They're expensive, and I don't know what their life expectancy would be on dry pavement, but if you want winter tire performance plus respectable capability the rest of the year, the Nokians are supposed to be as good as it gets. (No personal experience.)

    I'm in ohio, and yes I'm on the factory Dunlop as of right now. It's a hard decision I guess I want my cake and eat it too by just getting nice wheels with all weathers on them, instead if buying nice wheels and and also a winter set up. Sigh

    You could, but all seasons are kinda like having your cake, but only getting to lick the frosting.

    Just buy a set of 16in with some winter tires. Its not that big of a deal to swap them out.
