I saved a set of 185/60R14 Toyo Observe g-02 studless snow tires from my
daughters Honda. Thinking of putting them on my Soobie. Right now I am running some 205/60R14 Aspec AX-631 Snow tires with studs pulled. Just wanted to know if anyone has ran these.

The wheels wont fit your Subie unless you swap rims out.

I havent used those exact ones, but I ran some like them on my Loyale after I took the studs out since I was thinking Id save money (but then later had to buy winter tires again)

The work well, but I still prefer studs

They're a decent snow tire. I don't see any issues with getting the tires swapped over.

I'd try em out. It looks like they should fit and give you a slight lift. I only have personal experience with Blizzaks and studs (personally I prefer the blizzaks)

I imagine these should handle similar, though I seem to recall these have bits of walnut in them for traction and rely a little less on the rubber compound / pattern for traction.
