Buy winter tires. If you're buying a used set, make sure they're less than 5 years old and have LOTS of tread (Winter tires drop off pretty noticeably under 50% tread, they're practically un-usable). Finally, don't trust your tires until you learn where the grip is or isn't.
Winter tires are less than your deductible for your insurance. Its not worth the risk.
