Hi,I just took delivery of a 2017 wrx this past friday (M6) and I can't quit finding excuses to get in and drive it somewhere on my local country roads! i've put up with front wheel drive commuter cars for the past recent years and wanted something fun and safe to drive to work in Detroit. wow, i can't believe the handling capability on dry roads with the stock summer performance tires! i live on the ne edge of irish hills area Michigan which is known for a network of miles of hilly/curvy roads both gravel and paved and this car shines in these conditions! The thrill won't be the highway miles I drive but the local weekends at home! I really adore the older hatchback models but I can overlook this recent body style with the great drive experience I'm getting. since i drive ~70 miles 1 way to work i'll be getting a set of all season tires for the winter, looks like continentals are the thing for this vehicle. considering getting a spare set of rims for the change outs because i have the tools and the storage for both - let me know what you think and best rim recommendations (assuming stock?). We rely on our 4wd pickup for the really deep snow here but I noticed the used 2004 impreza wagon i bought for my teenage son literally plows snow deeper than it and i anticipate this Wrx will as well. I've enjoyed lurking on this forum for a couple of years and hope i'll have something to add. thanks for listening folks!
