I'm torn between all seasons or a snow tire because there is a lot of dry pavement driving. We also have a 2011 Outback which has the stock all seasons which got around great last winter. Is it safe to say the wrx would get around just as good with all seasons?

I've had a few sets of Snows on my Jetta. Makes it come close to our Subie with all seasons for starts but the snows own on the stopping power. I'd get them, you'll really notice the overall improvement when the going gets bad. Day to day, dry cold roads its going to be driving on marshmallows.
