planning on getting a set of these for my pugs...
Anyone on here running them now? I was hopping for some good subaru feedback.
this would be for my 1988 subaru d/r ea81 hatch.

I liked them.. they did great in most situations except mud...It's really good in snow and rain or easy trail..
Here's a pic of me wheelin' my hatch from many years ago..abit extreme for those tires but they got me by ..

Deep snow was my main concern, looks pretty good in the mud.

You said deep snow....are you offroading in it or are you mostly on road(like wha tthe tires you linked to are for)?
What do you call deep snow? 6"...1'...10'...
Is the snow your planning on running in wet or powdery and dry?
Is the snow compacted by other vehicles or are you plowing through fresh stuff?
How cold are we talking about? tires behave very differently in 30 degree than in -30 degree weather based on tread composition.
I generally prefer a good mud terrain for fresh snow like a cooper STT, BFG Mudd Terrain KM or a maxxis bighorn. Size can make all the difference too. Wide high flotation tires get up on top and allow you to traverse many many feet, but skinnier tires have a smaller foot print and do better on harder snow because the load isn't distributed.

my Hankook iPikes have most of their studs still in place (even though the tread is now dangerously low). makes an interesting sound on pavement, much like kittens on crack scrambling through the kitchen across linoleum flooring.
