New Tires

The Beautiful 'Naviguesser' told me that SUBYDOO ( '97 SVX) needs new shoes (tires). And who would know more about wanting new shoes than Rosie? I have an old photo of the real SVX Pace Car at the Reading Meet with its trunk filled with her shoes. And that was only an overnight stay. Anyway I always put all-season high performance tires on the SVXes. But now I don't run them when the snow and salt is on the ground. That's what Outbacks are for. I've been looking at TireRack's website at both ultra high performance all-season and summer tires and am leaning towards the BF Goodrich G-Force 2A/S Plus. in the stock size. It seems like a fairly good tire for a low price.
I would appreciate all comments and suggestions from fellow SVXers. Keep in mind that I recently turned 77 years old and don't drive like I used to but occasionally will have some fun with the car on dry twisty roads.

Thanks

PS: Don't tell Rosie.

Larry, those are great summer tires. Just be careful if driving in a heavy rain. All the best and hope you and Rosie are well!

Re: New Tires

My latest set purchased are Vredestein Qualtrac.

Very pleased. Plus they are designed by Giugiaro, which is fun.

The replacement for the Qualtrac is the Hypertrac.

Re: New Tires

I have the BFG G force comp 2 A/S on my BRZ and they have been a great tire! I would recommend them.

Re: New Tires

I just put the BFGs on my '07 Outback. They are overkill tire for the OB but they really made it handle great especially in the storm. Plus the price is very reasonable. I will get these for the SVX.

Larry, I have found Continental to be the best bang for the buck right now. Very good all around performance but quite a bit less than Michelin, which is great. I also like General Tire for the value.
