G'day every, Darren from Southern Fleurieu Peninsula. First Subie owner, had for about 5 months now & really grown on me. Made several mods already, extra sound proofing, reduced wind noise (I'll explain in a later post), and a set of new tyres, BFGOODRICH Advantage TA Sport which has transformed the feel to a much more enjoyable drive.

They're terrific on gravel roads and sand as well being grippier on the bitumen than the Bridgestones. They can be felt grabbing the gravel/dirt. Example, going through a corner I can change direction without unsettling the car, where as the factory tyres I couldn't do that, it would squirm uncomfortably. The video is running road pressures too, lower would provide further bite. Some tyres suit a cars characteristcs where as most don't, I believe these are ideal for a mixture of terrains all while providing more feel.

Snow, don't get any where I am, seen many favourable reviews in the snow, mud, in time I'll let you know, sand very good. Look at this link so far.....https://youtu.be/-934YTYtjDA
