I live in Colorado and frequently drive the mountains in the winter and definitely feel that dedicated snow tires are over kill on a Subaru. I've owned 5 Scoobys and on all 5 all I ever ran was a good all season tire and got through the deep stuff fine. Even my WRX with the stock RE92's did pretty good in 12" of the white stuff. If you live in the far north where snow/ice stays on the road from October to March then maybe I can see dedicated snows on the car. For areas where snow falls and melts off quickly resulting in a lot of dry winter days I personally wouldn't want to run on a dedicated snow tire.
