    Oh and I forgot to mention the tires come with a warranty that is void if: Misapplication, improper maintenance, racing, underinflation,
    overinflation or other abuse;....looks like he is out of luck

    But it makes it all worth it only paying $259 a tire

    I'd pony up $259 a tire for that ride.

    It is amazing that it is done in an "full time 4 wheel drive car".

    I expect Civics doing those manuvers but not a Subaru especially the one where the front wheels are the pivot and he's in the barriers.
