I have brand new firestone snow tires on my 09 impreza and it slips all over the place on snow i wonder why

Asked by Jan 22, 2012 at 02:34 PM about the 2009 Subaru Impreza 2.5GT

Question type: General

Why would my 09 impreza slid around when i'm going slow but it seems the back end is the
worst it starts to slide around even going up a hill? It has low profile tires on it.

the suburu stock suspension on the rear is a joke, and the sway bars are to stiff, you need to either loosen the top 19mm bolt on top a quarter inch, or be like me and get a whole new setup man

Narrow tires are key in snow believe it or not, when I recommend is buying a set of narrow steelies and putting snow tires on them as winter wheels.
