Default Tires slipping`Bridgestone RE960's

So it's the first winter up here in NH for my baja. I put a new pair of RE960's on about 7k ago. The baja seems to slip out a lot more then I remember in the snow. Is that normal? They hold like rails on dry/wet pavement. Maybe I'd been in Virginia too long and forgotten what the snow is really like?

The Blizzaks on my old stage 2 wagon used to break loose every time the car started to hit some decent boost

I like Firestone Winterforce Snows.....I have used them on various autos for the past ten years. When you live a little south of Buffalo, you get to know what works good in the deep stuff!!!

We have the winterforce's on my wifes outback xt. They hook up geat but handle like sponges. lol (snow tires) I like Dunlop wintersports. Great wet and dry handling and way better than an all season. Not as good on ice as a blizzak but I'd rather have performance most of winter here when it's just cold and rainy.

We picked up a set of steelies with snows mounted off of tirerack in late November for about $600 shipped. The Potenzas were wearing down a bit and after a trip though the Adirondack backcountry over Thanksgiving in the snow we decided we wanted winter tires on the critter. First time we're put snows on it, had the stock Potenzas then some replacment Potenzas other years-the snows made a HUGE difference (not that it was bad before, but it was better after). I can't recall the make, cheaper than Blizzaks but they had high recommended ratings from fellow subie owners there.

RE92 Potenzas are a Joke. I'm running 20mm wider than stock 'ultra-high performance' all seasons that are handling the snow better.
