Interesting - that tread pattern seems to be pretty close to a number of other A/T tyres, but it's one of the few relatively-aggressive ones I've seen for Subaru rims that's actually on the market. Think I'll look into it for the (eventual) replacement of what I've got on there now...

You want agressive?

Got these with a car:

Toyo 720 Snow Steel Extra. Steel studs, Mud+Snow rating, 165/70 r13

Doesn't seem like they have ever been used - all the studs are unworn. I don't really have any use for them myself. Someone should offer to buy em off me ;)

I just got some 185/70-13 MS tires that look almost exactly like that, studs and all. Also not worn, hardly used. Anyone ever heard of Snowmark?

A google of that seems to indicate they aren't being produced anymore (like the Toyo's above), and shows a lot of links from Canada so they may not have been sold here in the US.

Most decent 13's have been discontinued as there is no demand for them anymore. All manufacturers have gone to at least 14" and most are into the 15's and up now.
