What are the best snow tires for a Subaru Forester?

I recently moved to a state with harsher winters than I’m used to and would like to purchase snow tires for my Subaru Forester, but I don’t know which to choose—what are the best snow tires for a Subaru Forester?

As it stands, the best snow tires for a Subaru Forester are the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 winter tires, which start at roughly $175.00. You should be able to find these tires in your size regardless of trim level, as they are available in both 225/55R18 and 225/60R17.
When it comes to navigating wet, icy, or snowy roads, the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 winter tires are the go-to tires for any mid-size sedan or minivan. These winter tires offer exceptional grip, excellent traction, and incredible stopping power on all winter-weather surfaces, allowing you to drive safely and with confidence.
This is largely due to the Blizzak DM-V2’s patented multicell ™ technology, which improves road grip and reduces slippage through the use of water-shedding hydrophilic compounds—meaning you won’t see a reduction in handling even in the worst winter weather.
And while not as important as stopping power or wet/dry performance, the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 winter tires are often lauded for being extremely quiet and providing a comfortable road feel.
