Default Hit/Skip? - Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 studded snow tires for my 2013 Outback

Local dealer quoted them at $235/ea installed (includes $25 mounting + balancing per tire). The size would be 225/60/R17 and I would be mounting them on the stock 17" wheels that came on my 2013 2.5i. I want studded snows for the upcoming winter, I frequently drive long distances around the northern New England area during the winter during and after snow storms as I'm always chasing snow to snowboard.

When it snows, I head into it...so I get you. Dirrectional, sipped, studs they will do their job and certainly be task specific. I had a previous model on my Gen-1 in New England...directional with studs. Probably my best winter set up to date. On my XT I am about to get my new winter set, but I am looking for non-directional...since I do the 5-wheel location.

The SUV weight rating might be high, they may be stiff. Otherwise

Are you only planing on using them for 1 winter? Check out craigslist for a set of used rims.

I think you can also down size to 16" rims, unless you have the 3.6L

^^^Good advice if that is you're deal. Maybe its' Just Me, but stock rims for winter. The do something aftermarket for summer again. Steelies I think look bogus, unless you have a rally car or something that benefits from the purely "functional" look.

No diss on the above suggestion tho.
