Asked by Mar 17, 2016 at 06:48 PM about the 2010 Subaru Impreza 2.5i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Dealer sold car with Goodyear Eagle LS   P205 / 55R16  89 T        Ride has  never been right; rear wheels slip when turning into parking space, windshield vibrates, even at low speeds, feels shimmy side to side left to right like a penguin. Dealer said put foam in the windshield and told me to go away!. Should I worry about damage or future repairs because of this? The nature of the Subaru and the all wheel drive. Might it possibly void an aftermarket warranty? In your opinion, something to make a big deal about?
Thanks. Wanna love the whip. Unsure about unwitting history.

All your tire sizes have to match, be the same on all the wheels, for the all wheel drive or you get the things you describe. It will raise havoc with the gearing in the axles & possibly the transmission.
