Good replacements for OEM Yokohama Advan A82A ?

I'm switching over to my dad's '06 Legacy SE wagon, which comes with Yoko Advan A82 (205-50/17") stocks. They're "ok" most of the year but absolutely horrid on ice and snow. Since I prefer a set of year-round all-weather tires to replace those A82As, any recommendations ?



(the '04 OBW I own that I'll be swapping with my dad has new Nokian WRG2s, but I don't want to pay that much again for another set of 4 tires. Those cost me Cdn$900).

Well, the WRG2 is probably the best all-weather tire. The Primacy MXV4 and Optimo H727 seem to be the best all-season tires.

Honestly, if you get a lot of ice and snow, you're going to want another set of WRG2s, or run dedicated snow tires in the winter.
