model: WRX wagon
location: Rochester, NY 65% of time, Philly 35% of time
tires only or winter package: Winter package
Looking at the Sport Edition A7 alloy's or a steelie, Main concern is the amount of salting that Rochester and Philly do (a lot), will this alloy last me 4 winters?
For tires, thinking about Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D or the Blizzak LM 25, just based off reviews and popularity. Maybe a WS-60, I dont think its that snowy where I am, so maybe the WS-60 are a little extreme?
The Sport Edition A7 has a very durable finish exactly for that reason. The WS 60 would be my choice for your car due to the fact your primary area is prone to lake effect snow which can add up faster than removal is possible
