I'm considering Nokian NRW's for use on a Subaru Outback. I need good snow traction in an all season tire. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I'm also interested in Nokian NRW's. I already own Nokian Q's as my dedicated winter tire, but I'm also looking for tires to put on our old Camry.

No matter how I calculate it, 'all-weather' tires like the NRW's, or any other winter tire, they're going to cost me a lot in comparison to what I paid for the car. And that's okay.

Last fall I researched snow tires until I almost drove myself crazy. Decided against studs (Nokian 1's or lower cost Canadian Tire or Walmart studded tire) because our highways are almost always clear of snow and ice. I didn't want to make 300, 400, 500 mile journeys with studs on dry pavement.

But in the city, most of our roads end up being extremely icy and so I'm considering putting studded tires on the Camry. But I'm also considering NRW's on the car and using them all-year round. Around here, most people use all-seasons in the winter, so even switching to NRW's should make a noticable difference.

I have NRW's on my '97 Outback. I bought them last year about this time. I wanted an all-season that would handle Michigan winters. I need good snow traction, but swapping tires every season gets expensive!

They are simply worlds better than the OEM Michelins and are especially good in the snow. I can't say how good they would be in the snow on a fwd, but with awd they are awesome. Last year I was driving through snow deeper than the front bumper and it was no problem at all. They have about 16k on them now and look like they should last at least 2 more seasons - at which point I'll probably replace them with the same.
