I don't have a 3.6ltd but rather a lowly 2.5i.... That said I just bought some new snow tires last week.
I bought 17s and would suggest you do the same.... They are cheaper and the 225 65 17 size is quite easy to find.
Since I had the base 2.5 my outback came with 17" steelies from the factory which became my winter wheels. You should look around junk yards for some and may be able to find them. Alternatively, you can buy them online from one of the subaru parts retailers if you are able to drive across the border and pick them up.
As for which tires.... I chose the new Blizzak ws80 because I'm in Ottawa and because I got them for a steal. The deal is still on at Costco I thought nk where I got the tires for 127 each plus tax and install after the 70$ discount.
I have xice on my van and the blizzaks I feel are better suited for ottawa winters. If I love very in Toronto or southern Ontario or even Calgary for that matter I wrought probably buy the xice because their longer lasting and better suited to the warmer climes I think.
