2011 forester winter tires
The all-season tires that came on my Subaru really suck for winter driving. Subaru states that for "specification" purposes, all 4 tires need to be changed at the same time. What if I change only 2 tires to snow tires, keeping to the same exact size tires as the 2 all-seasons being left on the car (215 65 16)?
I had put 2 snow tires on (from my 2010 Forester, 215 60 16) and it set off my "traction" warning lights on the dashboard, indicating that the tires were not exactly the same. After taking them off, the warning lights were shut off.
Would like some input on whether putting ONLY 2 snow tires (same size as the all seasons on there now are) is acceptable? Thanks, ahead of time for your responses.
