Thought I had an oil leak coming from the motor.. turns out it was the power steering pump. So replaced that a few weeks ago.

Also put the summer set up back on, even though it was snowing a couple weeks ago

That sucks!

Red is for summer and the chrome purple is the winter set up

The car lives!

Honestly hadnt even driven it in over a month as the battery died.
I jumped it once and drove it around, but wasnt enough to charge it up. On top of also not driving it regularly.

Dropped the Crosstrek off at a shop and they'll have it for the week. So the STi is the DD for this week.

Looking at the tread design, those are nearly same as bridgestone RE7xx (yeah, same company, I know). They're cross-pollinating.

I drive the STI only a few times a week, but I try to make sure every week. That's why I put a yellow top in it lol. Have been travelling so much, didn't want it to die.

The ones you can see in the back of the Crosstrek were the old ones (new ones in front of those). The old ones were Bridgestone RE760, so pretty close

In reality, ive been driving the STi closer to once every two weeks lately.

And of course, after doing all this work, I think ive got a gnarly exhaust leak now Maybe on the OEM up pipe, or possibly the header. Cant tell for sure right now, but the car is up in the air till I figure it out haha

Couldn't patch it?

Rumor is the Firecawks are rebranded Bridgestone RE003. Which people also seem to like. But they've been one of the worst tires I've ever driven on.

I didn't notice TWO sets of tires in the car lol. Man, that's why I bought a wagon again too Trying to carry any decent amount of stuff, even one set of 18" tires, in the sedan blows.

I am running NT-05s on the STI. Love them, but got a nail in one not too long ago too. Was able to patch, but they're right at the wear indicators so will need some soon too.

beyond repair

and they were a little over 4 years old, so I got some time out of them.

Yea I was super happy to see I could EASILY fit 2 sets in there. Probably 3 fairly easy if I moved them around a bit.
