Are stock Subaru tires good for snow?
Here is Subaru of America’s official position on snow tires: “Subaru recommends the original equipment tires, as they were chosen specifically for your vehicle. If your area and/or climate require you to use a winter tire, we recommend that you use the same size/style as originally equipped.”
Is it worth putting snow tires on?
Think again. Tests conducted by Canada’s Traffic Injury Research Foundation showed that winter tires provide superior traction, braking, and cornering in all cold-weather driving conditions compared to an all-season tire. We’re talking better traction whether the road surface is snow-covered, icy, wet, or even dry.
