I have been thinking about replacing the A/S tires on my Subaru Legacy and narrowed it down to Continental Pure Contact or the Pirelli P7 All Seasons Plus. However, I am still concerned about snow traction and really do not want to run a dedicated snow tire as the car is not driven a lot and when it snows bad we use our other car that has snow tires. Anyhow I am now considering the Nokian WRG3, they would be about $140 than the Pirelli’s and $185 more than the Continental’s but it sounds like it my solve my winter driving concerns. My questions is has anyone run the Nokian WRG3 year round and what kind of performance (MPG, Handling, noise, etc.) did you have in the spring/summer/fall? They are supposedly LRR tires so I am hopeful that the MPG’s will not take a hit, but I am thinking that they might be a little louder than a normal A/S tire in the warmer months? Also, I just don’t want anything that is going to wear quickly or feel spongy.
