Yoko AVS db, also available from TireRack, has received great ratings on this board and very reasonable price. Known for it's QUIET ride!

I second the AVS DB's recommendation . Also they are 3/8" wider in tread and overall width compared to stock 92's.

Dr.Nick,

IMO, Do yourself a favor and get a set of summer tires on what ever wheel you normaly drive and get a set of winter "take off" wheels.

All season tire are a compromise between good dry grip and good wet/snowy grip.

the problem is they do neither very well

Peas,

No matter what, all-season tires are going to be pretty crappy come winter time. Most of them handle the snow okay, it's the icy spots you'll get in trouble with. For what it's worth, I have a friend who drives an RS and swears by the BFG KDWS. I got to admit, they are pretty good in snow, but then we only drive into snow when we go boarding. Just my $.02

#1 Sport 5000 (best adverse weather traction)
#2 AVS DB (quietest driving tire around)
#3 RE950 (great steering response in the dry)
In that order

My wife runs the RE92's on her Legacy in the summer and puts on Michelin Arctic Alpins in the winter. We got a set of "knock off" wheels from Subaru to mount the winter tires so it's easy to switch them.

See in savanah georgia when my school is, I am not going to see much snow. But when I go home for winter break I am going to need good traction. so if you guys have better suggestions to mabye just get all season tire that is more for dry and not so much snow but still is ok in snow and is better then these re's...

i agree with the Dunlop SP 5000's... i've got them and they've done a great job so far... i get little to no pull when flying, errrr, driving through standing water... and their traction in rain and adverse conditions is great too... like Luke said... i've put 3K on them so far... and they're hardly wearing at all... including (sp?) my trip from NH to MD... i'm definitely going to get another set of those when these ones wear out... their quiet too...
