Affordable 2012 Subaru Forester Tires

Finding the right tires can be quick and easy, especially when you have all the information you need to make a good decision. That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your  2012 Subaru Forester. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for  Subaru Forester tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want tire that's made to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View Subaru-recommended tires for your 2012 Forester, plus helpful information about Subaru Forester tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Subaru Forester tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Louisiana, you probably won't need heavy-duty winter tires. Somewhere like Colorado or even Kansas is a different story. You may want to invest in a set of Subaru Forester snow tires for one part of the year, and all-season tires for the rest of the year.

When evaluating your driving conditions, think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience. Many drivers who live in states that experience all four seasons choose to purchase two sets of tires: one for summer and one for winter. That way, they can maximize their Subaru Forester's performance during both seasons. Other drivers prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Subaru Forester to the limits? Going where no vehicle has gone before? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want tires that can stand up to gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. A larger tire with stiff sidewalls and a wide tread pattern can help prevent punctures and encourage stability on bumpy roads. But if you mostly drive around the city, a Subaru Forester tire that offers low rolling resistance for better fuel efficiency might be exactly what you want. Talk to a tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care for help choosing the best tire for you, or start shopping for Subaru Forester tires online. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 2012 Subaru Forester tires.

Subaru Forester Tire Brands

Firestone Complete Auto Care has plenty of good Subaru Forester tire brands for you to choose from. Firestone and Bridgestone are two popular brands. Firestone tires for Subaru Foresters always deliver! The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company was founded in 1900 in Akron, Ohio by Harvey Firestone. He was a passionate inventor from the start. Firestone recognized the overwhelming potential for automobile tires, so he started producing and testing truck, passenger, and farm tires. One of the company's pioneering efforts was the introduction in 1908 of the first all-rubber, non-skid tire! Thanks to Harvey Firestone, Firestone Tires has been committed to staying ahead of the curve since day one. Firestone now makes about 8,000 different tires for all kinds of vehicles — including tires for 2012 Subaru Foresters.

Bridgestone is another top choice for Subaru Forester tires. Shojiro Ishibashi founded The Bridgestone Tire Company Ltd. in Japan in 1931. His company merged with The Firestone Tire & Rubber Company in 1990. Bridgestone Tires now has more than 50 production facilities and 55,000 employees throughout the Americas! The company remains an international leader in tire and rubber technology, providing world-class service, tires, and more to communities worldwide. In the words of founder Shojiro Ishibashi, Bridgestone is dedicated worldwide to "serve society with superior quality."

Questions About 2012 Subaru Forester Tires

Inspecting and caring for your tires is one of the best ways to help them last. Get answers to common Subaru Forester tire questions and learn how to care for new tires.

  • Is Subaru tire inflation important? A small decrease in tire pressure can have a big impact on your driving. Maintaining proper tire pressure can help improve braking time, increase fuel economy, and boost tire lifespan.
  • What do the numbers on my Subaru Forester tires mean? Your tire sidewall gives you information about load carrying capacity, speed rating, treadwear, traction, and tire size. Talk to one of our tire technicians to learn how to read the numbers on your tire!
  • Is there an easy way to check Subaru tire tread depth? Grab a penny. Hold the so that Abe Lincon's head is facing you and his hair is pointing toward the ground. Then, place the penny into a tread groove. If you can see the top of Abe’s head, your tread is shallow and it might be time for new Subaru Forester tires.
