The best snow tires for a Subaru Outback 2021 are Bridgestone’s Blizzak or Michelin’s CrossClimate.
If you are a Subaru owner in a cold climate, then you definitely need snow tires in the winter. You need traction on snow, durability in cold conditions, and ice-breaking functionality.
One of the most popular snow tires for the Outback is Bridgestone Blizzak WS90. This tire offers good snow traction and can evacuate slush efficiently. They’re a bit more expensive than other brands but the performance is worth the investment.
Another good option is Michelin’s CrossClimate SUV tires. These tires are all-season tires with top reviews and an excellent reputation. They can take you safely from summer to winter.
Both options have the 3-Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol (3PMS), which indicates a tire that can provide traction in cold temperatures and on snowy roads.
Hope this helps!
