Just put 4 new Good Year ice grip's on my 99 forester..It had Pirelli cinturato p3000 M&S and found them to be less than desirable last winter...Not sure how many km's on them as they were on the car when i bought it and the car had 113, 000 km's.anyway decided to get rims and snows this year..went to a 215 65R 15 and gave them their first big test last week...freezing rain followed by 25cm's of snow...it was like driving a tank...no swing and sway..just straight ahead great pulling power... I now listen to the weather forecast with anticipation...not dread...so if anyone is looking for a snows..give the ice grips a look...

I have to agree with you..unfortunately studded tires have been illegal in ontario for ..seems like forever..(something about road damage),,however i remember my first car.... a 63 beetle...4 studded tires..that car would go anywhere..and i still remember one of the best ads for a car ever.."when it has just snowed 12 inches and you are waiting for the snow plow driver to clear your street..ever wonder how the snowplow driver gets to the snowplow??..then a scene of a bettle heading up a hill to garage where the plow was stored.. a classic..i know this is a subie site but just had to pass this on..

Tha's OK, the ad works just as well with a Subie heading up the hill. . .
