Passenger All-Season tires are for drivers who want a combination of a smooth ride, good wear and S- or T-speed rated durability along with all-season traction, including in light snow. Passenger All-Season tires branded with the M+S symbol are often used as Original Equipment (O.E.) on standard coupes, sedans and family vans, as well as some entry-level pickup, crossover and sport utility vehicles.

O.E. Passenger All-Season tires are typically purchased as direct replacements for worn-out pairs/sets of the vehicle’s original tires. They can also be used for other vehicle applications in complete sets of four or axle pairs if available in an appropriate size, load range and speed rating to match the existing O.E. tires’ performance category and specifications.


  1. Got these tires on a set of 16″ Subaru wheels from another Impreza owner who did not want them as he felt they were unusable in the winter. My car came with 17″ wheels with Avid S34 tires that were very noisy, despite that tire’s smooth center tread, so I am trying these 16s for the summer of ’14. So far, the car is much quieter with these, and after driving through heavy rain last week, felt they were very secure under those conditions. The cars rides very smoothly on the highway with these as well.Of course, with few sipes they must be considered summer tires here in the Northeast, and I would not pay $140 each to replace them with the same tires, but overall I like these much better than the 17s that came with this car.Come October, I will switch back to my winter tires as I would not want to get caught in a sudden snow storm with a tire that has such a smooth tread pattern.

  2. My commute is 50mi 1 way on mostly highway, some city. Really decent tread life. The ride has never been the quietest or smoothest and has been getting worse over time with religious rotation/balancing. Not great for Minnesota driving conditions. Packed snow isn’t a huge problem. Slushy and wet stuff is some of the worst performance I’ve ever seen in a tire. I am honestly afraid every time during a heavy rain that I will slide right off the road. Hydroplaning happens all the time in not even the heaviest of rain conditions. Turning traction in slush and powdery snow is not great.

  3. Came stock with new 2012 Impreza. I read reviews on these tires before even have laid my eyes on my car. I do not understand the hate. These are good tires. So far so good. I’m sure I can get better tires when I need to replace, choosing between Conti DWS and Michelin Pilot Sport A/S.

  4. OEM tire on the Impreza, 0 complaints when the road is dry. Add water in any from and these tires begin to show their shortcomings. In the snow they seem to break loose when you attempt to turn, despite the traction to brake and accelerate, but very poor lateral grip.Noticed the same thing on wet and damp roads, braking and acceleration are fine, but attempt to turn and these tires throw a fit like a sugar loaded toddler. Will NEVER own another set of these tires, the poor grip in turns is a deal breaker in West Virginia.

  5. I have placed 100,600 miles on these tires in the past two years. Most of my driving is country highway or interstate driving although I experience plenty of city / town driving on a daily basis. This is by far the best set of tires that I have experienced in my past 30 years of driving. Even with 70,000 miles on the tires, I was able to drive through months of heavy snow on my 50 mile one way commute on a daily basis. My only complaint is that they were never “quiet” tires and they have gotten worse over time but I consider this a minor complaint considering the traction and mileage I have been able to utilize.
