Good to know. My one concern was ride quality and road nose with these tires. I usually go with Coopers for this reason when replacing original tires.My son purchased these tires for his Forester and they're incredible. He's already driven on snow with them and he says that they grip as well as his winter tires did.
He purchased them months ago and said that they're also excellent in dry and wet warmer conditions and are quiet as well with little road noise. He loves them.
And I can tell you they look awesome.
Side note;I'm considering them for my 11,000 miles Alaska/Pacific Northwest National Parks road trip in 2022. I'm thinking I will need to swap tires in Vancouver Washington (US side) to snow, and then head up from there... swapping back to all terrains when I get back.
Not yet. I've done very limited planning. I'm currently planning the first four on this list... next trips are:Side note;
Do you have a thread about this trip? We are considering such ourselves. Not sure if we'll take the Ascent or my truck w/Lance camper.
I've already carefully checked into this with Michelin. You simply rotate front to back on the same side. Michelin says this is not an issue with the tire warranty or tire wear on these tires nor is there ever any need to dismount the tires for rotation.Something to consider is that the Cross Climates are directional tires and can’t be rotated in the (X) pattern recommended by Subaru.
