Hello.

It's time to get a set of tires on my 99 Legacy Outback and I'm getting differing info on what size was OEM. I believe it's 205/70R15, but I want to verify.

From there, I'm looking for recommendations on a solid all-weather tire. It will have all the variables thrown at it. Snow/ice in the winter, hot pavement in the summer as well as hilly terrain, freeway and city driving.

My usual mechanic tells me I should pick a hearty tire as the AWD of the Subaru is a little harder on the them. If I pair the wrong tire, I could find them wearing quite rapidly.

Appreciate any advice. Thanks!

I don't know if the Primacy MXV4 is available in that size, but it would appear that the Optimo H727 is. That's usually one of the higher rated A/S tires. Another option would be the WRG2, but I don't know how well that does in those awful heat waves you get in the midwest.

I am biased, but I would suggest two sets of tires....a three season tire (like the Optimo), and a dedicated set of snow tires.
