Tires

I would do the Yokohama for the price to overall performance. If you want one step better in terms of performance than I would go with the Conti Extreme Contact. By the way I worked for Continental for 4 years, so I have some very good working knowledge of tires and construction.

Good luck to you and welcome abord.

Tires

Tires? I bought my 98 OB in 2000. A week later I ran into a large piece of metal and slashed one tire. Unfortunately, the friendly Les Schwab tire store said I need 4 new tires due to the AWD. I was upset, but figured I might as well get good tires. I got the best all weather "Toyo" brand tires they had, about 100/tire and have had them for 70k miles. I drove them in the Washington Cascades, and now the New Mexico mountains. Great tires, no problems. I plan on getting another set in about a month. Toyo's are not that common down in New Mexico, but I found one dealer that has them. Hope this helps.

Thanks

I hsve pretty much mad up my mind on the conti's .I just sold my beeter car for 1500.00 so i have about 400 for tires . i just have to find a good place here in South Jersey ( Cape May County) to have the tires mounted and balanced . Just got my 1st 29.5 mpg from my outback . Mostly highway but about 25 % city .

My outback runs better everytime I start it.



:D
