97 Impreza OBS


I have a 97 OBS and I have been running the Dunlop D60A2(205/60/15)tires for about 30,000 miles. I think the tireS ARE GREAT, they are much better than the RE930's that were on the car stock. They may not be the stickiest tires but they feel confident in the rain and snow. You would probably want to go with a 215/65 so they speedometer will stay fairly accurate, only off by less than a mph. I dont think that those tires comein RW lettering though, so you will have a slightly different look. I lost the RW letters on my OBS and dont mind a bit.

Post Replacement tires for Outback?

Our '96 Outback tires are over 50,000 now and still have some tread left. We're planning a long driving vacation and think I should replace the aged Micheleins with something new. Does anybody have any suggestions? We do 95% paved roads (kind of fast) and some dirt/logging roads everynow and then. I liked the Dunlop D60A2 on my AWD Talon. The guy at Costco has Micheleins for $93 and Re92s for $78. I have the Re92s on my RS and although everyone on the Impreza board whines about them, I'm OK with them so far. I've even autocrossed them once and will next week-end too. I got the Outback out on the track at Buttonwillow a couple of years ago and did several laps with stock driving pressures. They did pretty well considering. Anyway, any sugestions on replacement tires? What about going to a 215-65 or 60 -15? It has 205-70 15s now. Sorry to ramble on. Thanks.
