Just Got A New Tribeca, With The AWD Do I Need To Get Winter Tires, Or Will The Stock Tires Be Fine?

Since you live in N.H. you may want to consider winter tires, depending how much you drive in heavy snow. Subaru all wheel drive is great, winter tires would make it better.

That Is Sort Of What I Thought, We Generally Don't Travel Unless We Have To During Storms Just Work Really Ten Miles Each Way. Guess I'll Have To Try And Find Some Winter Tires. Thanks

Stop capitalizing every word...it hurts my brain.

 

I would recommend some winter tires for your location. Definitely not studded though. Not necessary in a Subaru.

it's highly variable.  if you're close to the coast, don't get much snow, and the roads are flat, and the local snow removal is excellent - you may not notice much difference with snow tires with a meager commute and not much snow travel.

 

otherwise snow tires are amazing and well worth it.

 

if you want to keep the vehicle along time, get a set of dedicated wheels for the snow tires and your new wheels will last and stay in great shape much longer not being exposed to the winters. that's what most of us do.
