I definitely say the tread pattern is not wet friendly compared to the originals.


Ryan try the S-04 Potenzas

Depending on what kind of performance you want you can play around with tires. From other peoples opinion stay away from the Kum-Hoes as we call them. V12's are a solid daily tire but the tread won't last as long as at that point maybe get a more solid summer tire for the price like the Federal 595 RSR you can PM flukewrx on those, he has I think 17k+ miles on them. We can talk tire at the meet monday too.

Well I was hoping to keep it in between the 1-150 range, don't necessarily want bang for the buck but I don't have the bank to spend either lol

Wash and vac'd the Forester and found a bunch of road rash.

Ohhh the lows I've reached when I post that a wash and vac was the highlight of what I did this week.

I'm sure ive noticed you too at some point we're few and far between on the peninsula lol.. and how do you know my last name.. :lol

anyway on the tire note thanks for the recommendation I'm pretty much gonna need new ones asap and I was thinking of going for something more street oriented than my conti dws's that were on my 09 stockers, loved em but I'll probably get a designated snow set anyway.. i was flirting with kumhos xs/hankooks v12's to try something new ill check out the rs3's too, other recommendations peoples?
That's my old wagon If I'm not mistaken you bought the car from me.

Glad to see its in good shape.

The CF comes in many shapes and sizes from McMaster-Carr. That catalog is a DIY fabricator's bible. :]
