I was very disappointed in the stock yokohama tires. What was Subaru thinking when they chose these? I just put over 16k on them and found they were horrible in anything other than dry weather. I just couldn't pull the plug and purchase new rubber as soon as I got the car. Now that winter is coming, I just replaced them with Nokian WRG2's. These are a true 4 season tire as opposed to an all-season. They run these in Europe where they are serious about tires and it reflects in their laws.
