Had a '14 Crosstrk and just traded it for a '15 rex limited. Almost had the XV for a year but I needed 120 more horses.

Wow, for a car it is quick. Got the ice silver. What a beauty.

Looking for a set of all season tires. Don't wanna have to go in once a year to have them changed and don't want to buy another set of wheels. Any suggestions?

I had 49 sport bikes since 1979 and stopped riding after decades because of accident (wasn't my fault). I still luv exceleration so hence the Rex.

At 59 I haven't slowed down. Anyone over here in Central WA?

To me WRX means Weally Really Xciting.:laugh:

Welcome to the forums

When you have time upload a photo its nice to know what to look for when your on the road.

Im glad you came over to the dark side, Things are much quicker over here. Word to the wise if they are legal in WA I would pickup an Escort Radar detector. The $500 is less than the cost of a speeding ticket and its nice to know when your being watched : )

If your looking for all season tires I like the Continental Control Contacts I picked them up over the reigning favorite Pilot SuperSports because they had great cornering characteristics and a crazy MFG rated lifespan of 50k miles.

Ive been very happy with them in what little snow and water we get here in SoCal. They grip great and they are very predictable in all the weather conditions I have seen since I picked them up back in October. They are rated as All Season tires but they handle more like summer tires on dry pavement. Only time will tell if that lifespan is for real, if not then Americas Discount Tires will reimburse me for the difference anyway so it doesn't really matter.

Anyway, welcome to the community. If your ever down in SoCal keep an eye out for a 13 Hatch with a light bar in the front grill, Ill be waving :D

thanks.
I bought a new Solo radar and my gf uses my older passport.

I also have a portable police scanner so I can tell where the state patrol plane is and also if some jealous jackass is calling me in. I usedto run from the state patrol on my bikes. I would start the chase. I stopped at 50 years old.
