I'm currently considering getting Bridgestone Blizzaks, Continental ExtremeContact, General Altimax Arctic or Nokian Hakkapelitta. Any other suggestions? I see alot of memebers using WRX wheels, what years are compatible with our cars?
This video of mine (just in case you haven't already seen it) was using Blizzak WS60s in the 195-60-16 size:

So you can imagine that I have no traction complaints with that tire.

My only complaint with the WS60 is that road noise is pretty pronounced, especially when the roads are wet.

On my previous car, I ran General Altimax Arctics (minus the studs), and really liked them. They are a quieter tire, and that's probably what I'll buy next when the WS60s wear out.

Even though I bought my WS60s used on an older set of WRX wheels, I can't tell you what model years of WRX are compatible. I think the guy I bought these from had a 2008, but I'm not certain of that.
