Default Do you have the traction you need this winter?

Do you have the traction you need this winter?

Traction is key. And it starts with your tires. Even those vehicles with four-wheel drive, ABS, or traction control still rely on their tires for maximum traction.

Take a look at The Tire Rack's Preferred Winter Tire & Wheel Package for the 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi

Winter Tire & Wheel Packages are the best way to outfit your Subaru for the winter season. You'll have the best tires for the conditions you're driving in this winter and you'll protect your summer tires and wheels from exposure to the salt and sand that's used to maintain the streets in winter.

Similar packages are available for other Subaru models. Or, you can build your own by selecting from the various tire and wheel (both steel and alloy) options that we have.

Read more about or build your own Winter Tire & Wheel Package here.

I've got nowhere close to the traction I need this winter... Dunlop Sp Sport 5000's...

If you can find me 4 winter tires that you'll give to me for $2 (shipped) i'll think about it, But i'm living in the red as it is.

Next winter though i'll give you guys a call.

Michelin Symetrys...um nope. Lol. I'm looking to change that soon
Still thinking Indy 500's for me next set. I do have one question for Luke though. I'm curious about maximum tire width that would work for my Forester. Stock is 205, but how wide could I run till I have rub issues under heavy cornering. I'm contemplating the range of width/aspect ratios I want to work with and what's available in those sizes. Yes, I know wider isn't better come snow and generally any off-roading where contact pressure is more important. Still, I'm curious.

I've got traction! Nokian Hakka 2's going on next Monday.

I purchased WS-50's from tirerack last year but I gave them to my mom as the wear on them is terrible compared to Nokians. They are great in the snow, but be prepared to drive like your grandmother if you want them to last. Remember, the snow tire rubber compound is only the first 1/2 of the tread depth.
