Default Recommend me an all terrain tire for stock 05 wrx wagon wheel

I want to get some decent tires for long highway and dirt trail driving for my 05 wrx wagon. I'm on a lowered setup now with pink springs running 235's on a 17 wheel. I want these stock wheel tires for the driving I will do during hunting season. Any recommendations for a good tire? Hopefully under 100 each. Thanks.

I used the Traction TA's before. They were a really good all around tire. I drove a lot of dirt roads (in a GTI, though, not my WRX), highways, snow, rain. They worked well for just about anything. And they look pretty mean, too.

Even RE92s are fine for this. Just find a take-off set somewhere for $100.

What size should I get for the stock 16 in wheel? Considering my lowered setup which would be best? Like how wide and tall of a tire?

205/55-16 is the stock size. You probably won't be able to run a taller tire, which will limit (severely) your choice of tires.

If it's going to be reasonably cold during hunting season (i have no idea, i don't hunt) a set of winterforces would do you well. Good chunky tread, square sidewall.

the traction t/a v rated may have a good strong stiff sidewall that would resist punctures a bit better than some others

I bet you could get away with a 205/60/16 maybe even 65 I've been wanting bigger tires too and from looking at the room in there I'd think it would fit.
