I have pretty much decided on these tires for my 2003 Outback Wagon. Any comments or criticisms would be appreciated! THANKS!

I've got these on the family car, no complaints. I rotated them and will have to again because of the wifes driving style (full push), but they seem to be holding up very well. Great in the snow.

I have these on my Legacy (205/50/16) and am very happy with them. They are a great combination of performance and treadlife for the money.

I haven't used them in the snow, as I have dedicated snow tires but in wet conditions they are fine. No complaints.

I have these tires as well. They are great tires, but they are loud if you like to pump your tires up. I have the pressure set at 32/31 f/b and it seems to be a happy medium. I have about 10,000 on them now, and it doesn't appear that they have worn any. I would imagine they would work great in light to medium snow just looking at the tread pattern. I haven't found out yet. Dang I can't wait til it snows. Anyways they are great all-rounders.

I've got these on my OBS and they are great, girlfriend has them on her Altima and it hard to get the wheels to spin in the wet which is inpressive for that car. They are very loud though but it doesn't bother me to much...

I just put 4 on my legacy, 205/60/15. It was a very dramaric imporvement over the crappy firehawks. I don't think they're very loud and the rain traction is exceptional.

Do you guys use T-rated or H-rated ones?

My research also pointed me to BFG traction T/A T-rated, but the local sam's club can only order H-rated ones.

Thanks
