Subaru Impreza – 215/45 R17 Z Bridgestone RE040
The Subaru Impreza comes in a few different guises. Our favored model is the 2.0L WRX turbo. The tyre of choice on the Subaru is a Bridgestone RE040 size 215/45 R17 Z. This tyre is a little harder than the standard performance tyre offering; however the RE040 has the ability to stick to the road when warm. With some road testing we can see why a firm tyre is the choice of Subaru as the pressure the car puts on its 4 wheels is quite considerable thus requiring a sturdy tyre sidewall. The Subaru Impreza enthusiast’s tyre of choice is from our experience a Goodyear GSD3 and a Toyo Proxes T1-R. This is interesting as these two tyre models are directional and the Bridgestone RE040 model is not. So we think you would consider a directional tyre when making your replacement choice.
Subaru Forester – 215/60 R16 H Yokohama Geolander
The Subaru Forester is more mature older brother of the Subaru Impreza. It likes to have fun but is more interested in getting its work done first! The tyre choice for this car is a 215/60 R15 H Yokohama Geolander. The Yokohama Geolander is the new addition to the Yokohama tyre family and is without doubt a positive move towards mainstream tyres for Yokohama. We like the Forester as a work-horse with a bit of luxury, and we have some options that may give you more life and save you a couple of quid. The options we recommend are the Michelin Synchrone or the Goodyear Wrangler brands.
