  1. ('14-'18) '15 Forester - Replacement All Season Tires

    Wheels and Tires
    I suggest regular Michelin premiers over LTX. I have LTX on my car. They are great when it comes to traction in snow and rain. But they are hard. I am talking about hard at 33 psi. I recommend you to go for regular premiers. I bet you would be happy. Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  2. ('14-'18) fuel light - how much gas is left when it lights?

    Fuel Economy and Alternative Fuels
    Rightly said. I always make sure I do not run below 1/2 of tank capacity in winter. Summer, I maintain at least 1/4th. Read some articles on internet and you will get scientific reasoning behind same. It has something to do with condensation in tank. Apart from science, it is logical that you...
  3. ('14-'18) Michelin Premier A/S

    Wheels and Tires
    Same experience talking to tire rack people when I got these. I would recommend A/S as they are more focused towards passenger car making them possibly quieter than LTX Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk
  4. ('14-'18) Michelin Premier A/S

    Wheels and Tires
    I have LTX version of these tyres. They are very good on traction including snow performance. I live in Midwest so snow is plenty in winter months. Only downside is they do develop humming noise. I have them for 15K miles and review is based on that much miles driven on highway and city both. If...
  5. ('14-'18) All Season Tires Recommendations ??

    Wheels and Tires
    Driving on Michelin premier LTX for last 15K miles. They handle very well. You may find some people calling them loud tires. But in my personal opinion, they are not. They are far better than stock Geolanders in comfort, grip in snow and handling. Yes, they are little costlier but best in line...
  6. ('14-'18) Anybody have these convex mirrors?

    Exterior and Body
    @Mack - you may not need those if you adjust mirrors correctly as Beluga suggested. Here is what I follow to eliminate blind spot. Try out this simple trick. Adjust your seat to preferred height. Sit straight with head stuck to headrest. Adjust left and right mirrors in such a way that little...

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    I don't understand why Subaru could not install the mist spray nozzles like front windshield in back. Has anyone tried to install the same nozzles as front in back? Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk

    Wheels and Tires
    I am running Michelin Premier LTX and have no complaints so far. I have put 2500 miles on it so far. I live in Chicagoland area and can confirm they have excellent snow traction.

    Consider continental pure contact or Michelin Premier A/S. I have been using Michelin's since long and can swear by their ride quality. Excellent performance.

  11. ('14-'18) Adding USB charger to back of center console (arm rest)

    Interior and Electronics
    if I can recollect correctly sitting at my desk, Forester has 12V port in Trunk. You may want to use that.
  12. ('14-'18) Will Michelin's make a difference?

    Wheels and Tires
    Quick update - we had first snow today. Three to five inches with good enough accumulation. Roads were not clean and were slushy. I must say my Forester with Michelin Premier LTX performed exceptionally well. Very rarely abs was engaged and no sliding issues. Great tyres and great AWD system...

    @Gray Goose - any comments on premier A/S?
  14. ('14-'18) Will Michelin's make a difference?

    Wheels and Tires
    I am hoping you are talking about Michelin Premier LTX and *not* defender LTX. There are both in market but with reference to this topic I guess you are thinking about premier LTX. I have put LTX on my 2015 Forester. They handle good. Ride is smooth and no road noise. It could be because the...
