My dad wants to lease a brand new 2017 Outback Premium (they have some incredible deals right now). He loves the car and is expecting it to perform very well in the snow. With winter fast approaching, I am a bit concerned about some of the reviews I have been reading about the 2015+ in the snow. I believe they still but the Bridgestone tires on the 2017 premiums. With a lease, he obviously doesn't, and shouldn't, have to dump money into a set of snow tires on a car that isn't his. Anyways, should he be fine in the snow for 3 years on the stock tires? He is coming from a fwd Jeep Patriot.
