The factory is out of alloy wheels?!??!!! Seems weird to me....Sure the SE edition is not that plentiful but how will they replace wheels damaged etc.
For the best selection of wheels...check out tirerack.com.

Would someone please recommend a good replacement tire for my 2006 B9? I live in New Hampshire, want something good for rain, snow, safety, quiet, longetivity.
I have to replace them this month, cannot pass inspection with the current factory tires.
Thanks for your help.

I replaced my tires at 54k with a set of Michelin Synchrone 4X4 (Discount Tire). The rating is great for wet and good for snow. I live near Albany N. We got a lot of snow last year. They were great in the snow. I got better mileage on them too. And they are unreal on wet pavement. I, also, have a Ford Sport Trac. I can't wait to get a set for that. The Tribeca is a far better car. We already have 80k on it. We are looking at the new ones. It is my first Subaru but definitely not my last. I have an awesome dealer as well(Goldstein,Albany,NY).

I seem to be thinking the opposite of the others here. To me, the OEM tires are both lousy (especially in snow) and too wide. For snow and for better mileage, I would rather switch to a narrower tire. Has anyone thought about whether 235-60-18s would work on the standard wheels? Seems like the difference in circumference and sidewall height is minor.

I just purchased 4 new Yokohama 255/55R tires. They are nice and quiet. The only problem is the tire pressure light stays on. How do i turn it off?

Who installed them?
I wonder if they damaged the tire pressure sensors? Or maybe they mounted the tires on the wrong corner of the car?

I'd go to the tire store first. If damage was done they'll fix it free, while the dealer won't (correctly so).
