Original Equipment (OE) All-Season tires are the prevalent tire choice for vehicles sold in the United States. Developed for use on new cars and light trucks, these tires provide a versatile blend of ride quality, noise comfort, treadwear, handling and year-round traction, even in light snow.

While Original Equipment All-Season tires are often repurchased as direct replacements for pairs and sets of worn out Original Equipment tires, they can also be used on other vehicles in axle pairs or sets of four if they match the needed tire size, load range and speed rating specifications, as well as the anticipated driving conditions.

While we attempt to provide a picture of as many of these tires as possible, the pictures used to represent these tires cannot be guaranteed to be an exact depiction of each tire’s appearance because of the variety of subtle differences in tread designs and sidewall styling.

  1. These tires came stock from the factory on my 2014 Subaru Impreza 5-door Hatchback. They’ve “lasted” about 2.5 years since I’ve owned the car (nearly 40k miles). I put quotes around lasted, because they never seemed to have much tread even brand new and were always terrible in snow, ice, and heavy rain. I honestly don’t know how I didn’t get into a more serious accident with these in the snow. The first winter I had them I wiped out into a snow bank going about 25 MPH down a straight inner-city neighborhood road. There was about 2″ of snow and ice left on the road when the spin-out occurred (luckily no damage). After that scare, I would white knuckle and go way below the speed limit during heavy thunderstorms and any kind of snow wile city AND highway driving. I felt lots of hydroplaning even while going 10 below the speed limit in some cases. I’m a spirited driver, so it takes a pretty big scare for me to drive below the speed limit. These tires are dangerous and unreliable for anything but summer driving in very dry climates. I would NOT recommend these to anyone who lives anywhere that gets a lot of rain and/ or snow and ice. Anything other than drive pavement and your asking for accident and possibly injury. Subaru should stop putting these overpriced, useless chunks of rubber on their cars.

  2. I bought a brand new Subaru Impreza in Dec 2015. I’ve put 1500 miles on my new car since then and while driving my car on a dry, smoothly paved road I had a random blowout. I didn’t run over any potholes or debris but the rear passenger tire was slit all the way through threading and steel belt. Fortunately, after some convincing, the dealership agreed to cover the cost of a new tire but after I do some search, I am getting these substandard tires off my vehicle before I wind up with a serious blowout that results in a major accident.

  3. This tire came on my Subaru Impreza when I bought the car new. It was not a terrible tire but I can’t really say anything positive either. The tires seem to me to be very fragile. I have had more patches and nails in the tires than any other tire I have ever had. I became quite proficient at putting in my own tire plugs as it seems I had a flat at least 4 times a year. I hit a pothole once and damaged the tire beyond repair and it was replaced by subaru as it was still under warranty. This past weekend it was very cold in NJ and I had two flats at the same time. My son and I pulled the tires off to find that there was nothing physically wrong with them they just lost air.The tires were pretty quiet for the first 25K miles but after it was hard to have a conversation in the car as all the noise was coming from them. If i had to say something nice about these it would be that I averaged really good gas mileage with the tires. Close to 30mpg. After 59,000 miles I decided to replace them with Firestone Firehawks AS as they were in my price range and a Firestone is on the corner of my block.
