Hey all... anyone drive their RS's on the beach? how does it fare?

and anyone know of dedicated (but under $80 each) off-road tires that fit the RS's stock rims?...

You probably won't find a good sand & snow tire. They need different designs to work well. Wide is better for sand where skinny is better for snow.

I drove a R/C car on the beach once.

The next day everything metal had rusted. I would not do it to my real car. :eek:

...but keep in mind that cars have neat things like undercoatings and galvanized panels :)~

My first 'car' was a suzuki samurai, so I'm still hooked on driving on the beach... then again, the only subaru I saw back then were a few legacys and one rs.

back to tires, I'd probably be looking for something w/ the stock width, possibly a step up in sidewall size; I'll search the net in a few for cheap rally tires, see what's out there.

Do they make bfg t/a's in 205/55/16? hehe

Yeah, about the beach:

My boys were trying to get a phatty picture on the beach in Maryland last summer. The first car we put on the beach went plunk...right down into the beach. Had one hell of a time getting it out, but we got the picture, I will post it at a later date if I can find it. Good luck finding sand tires, I think either way you will sink to the bottom unless the sand is really hard.

...damn, guess I'll think twice about the beach plans :)

I'd love to see that pic if possible haha...


...and does anyone know where I can find that video clip of a wrx racing a dune buggy up a dune? I saw it a while back in the posts (possibly on another board), but the link wasn't functioning anymore.
