2020 Touring XT, 2013 Outback Lim SAP 270K, 2003 Outback Lim MT 2.5L, 241K..
Had a blowout, tires are worn pretty good, so Im installing 4 new tires on my 2020 Touring XT. Im getting the Michelin Cross Climate 2s from Costco but I'm a bit torn on what I see in the reviews. Generally, I am in Los Angeles area, and I drive a lot (almost 90K on my 2020 Outback)- mostly highway, but I do like going into the mountains every year for winter - Big Bear and Mammoth and Sierras, so these sound great as their handling in snow and wet is excellent. The reviews also say these are NOT good tires for off road. Now I do hit the occasional dirt/gravel road in my travels, nothing insane, but some rough roads here and there. Should I avoid the dirt/gravel stuff with these tires? Am I overthinking it? Thanks for any insight.
