So, I'm going to be buying tires this weekend....
....and here's some things that I came up with:
1. First off, the tires that are currently on my car are the wrong size. Period. According to several places, the stock WRX tire size is 205/55/16...and the tires on my car now (a worn set of Hankook H714s) - 205/65/16. WTF???
2. I'm thinking about going up to a bigger tire size. Would a 225/50/16 tire work on a stock '03 WRX rim? It's for a wagon with a stock suspension/ride height.
3. Here's some of the tires that I was looking at:
Hankook V4ES - like it alot, looks like a good tire - $105
HP259 - its a generic NTB tire, but it's made by yokohama and its cheap - $80
Potenza RE960AS Pole Position - expensive (to me) at 135, but looked good
Potenza RE760 Sport - $115
Fierce UHP - Goodyear generic, made by Kelly. Looks like it would have zero snow traction (even with awd, lol), but its $96... eh.
Bridgestone G019 Grid - not exactly a HP tire, but its still v-rated and has a 50k mi warranty. $95
I'm going to be putting these on in my auto tech class at a community college I attend here in the KC area on monday (woohoo!) so any advice would be way appreciated.
