I know...most of you might not be driving these wonderful machines
in the winter, however, I have to, plus, I bought the car to enjoy all
the time and not be a garage king. Does anyone have any advice on winter tires, I checked with my dealer and tire rack, the cheapest tires on tire rack are Michelin X-Ice for 125/tire. I also saw some coopers for 112/tire. I might use the stock rims for winter and pick up some nice cobra rims for the summer. Any thoughts are appreciate. Oh yeah, I have 17"s

and a lot cheaper than the X-ICE up this way..
was quoted $230 for the Michelins and got the Observes for $175 ea.

Goodyear has an Ice and Snow radial w/directional tread pattern.I put a set on the wifes Jag(04') and they ride really nice and have plenty of traction up in the mountains.They were about $110 each.

almost any winter tire will be better than every all-season tire for snow and ice. Blizzak is a favourite around here. The most expensive tire will not necessarily be the best, but the cheapest will almost certainly be among the bottom performers.

The best speed rated winter tire I've had is the Michelin Alpin Pilot... haven't had a set on the Stang yet though.

06300HP,

I'd listen to these Canajuns about snow tires,they live on the ice most of the year.
