What happens if you run soft, sticky winter tires in the summer time? Will the soft compound perform better than all-season or summer tires, but simply wear faster, or will it wear faster and have less grip? To find out, I’m testing my Crosstrek on the same road, with two sets of new tires. One set are winter tires: Bridgestone Blizzak WS80. The other set are all-season tires: Yokohama Geolandar G95. The two tires have the same size, recommended tire pressure, and are tested at the exact same ambient temperature: 63 degrees F.
The vehicle tested is a 2016 Subaru Crosstrek. The Yokohamas are the OEM tire fitted to the car. I run the Bridgestone Blizzaks in the winter for optimum traction in snow and ice, common for my location.
