Snow Tires Necessary?

Asked by Dec 07, 2010 at 01:22 AM about the 2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 i

Question type: General

Hi All,

First forum post here as I just bought a 2008 Legacy 2.5i yesterday. I have brand new Riken 205/50zr17 89w - Raptor zr - tires on it. Are these tires okay in the snow or will the chaincheck not allow me to pass in the snow? If not, what type of snow tires would you recommend I purchase? The car has 53,000 miles on it, but it is in very good condition.

Thanks for your help!

Yes i would recommend getting snow tires as the ones you have on now dont have the correct tread.
