Default Tires for a 2005 Baja Turbo

What are you guys running on the baja, sizes and pics if you have them. i am picking up my first Subaru Baja and am really new to Subaru. Anything I need to watch for...I am getting a 2005 turbo AT with 43K miles, garaged, and very clean.

I cannot beleive how fun this car is too drive.

You will probably get more responses in the Baja section.
What are your plans for your Baja? That would be the determining factor in what kind of tires YOU need.
Mine is a DD. Living in the midwest, I run into all kinds of weather so I run all seasons. (I don't want to bother with dedicated winter/summer tires right now) I currently have Bridgestone Grids G019, in the stock size. They are a little noisy, but work ok for my type of driving. There are better tires and there are worse tires. Determine your needs and then research.

All of us on here are driving WRX vehicles, not Bajas. That is why the forum is called the North American Subaru Impreza Owner's Club.

I can't yet post in the baja section because I am new. I would have posted in THE BAJA section. I hope all Subaru owners are not like you...wow. I thought this looked like the best site to belong too. I think I will do some more searching for a more friendly site.

All I was doing was asking what tires baja guys are using. Thank you to you, I think ONE guy that has responded.

By the way djosbun at the very bottom of this site there is a BAJA section. I will keep my posts to this section from now on. Sorry I don't own an Impreza.

tell us what you expect from your tires and we may be able to help.
Your location, type of driving etc.

I might be driving a bicycle and still be able to tell you which tires I would use in your situation.

Use tirerack.com for research.
