Any ultra high performace tire will turn your car into a 3000lb sled in the snow...

that is what winter tires are for...

Ok. will take your advise. But I still wonder if winter tires are worth it. In Toronto, it harldy snows and if it does it gets cleared off the roads pretty quickly.

its not all about snow, winter tires have a softer compound that perform better in the freezing cold, where an all-season or performance tire would become hard and provide very low traction in those lower temperatures.

Hahaha, shit this thread made my day.

Basically, just get summer tires for your 15's and get dedicated snows next fall. You can seriously buy used OEM wheels and brand new tires for less than $500, and you won't believe the difference over all-seasons. To think about it another way, just one accident prevented and you more than paid for the tires. And in another way, you're really not costing yourself any extra money; while the summer tires are on the car, the winters are not, and vice versa. It's the exact same wear, and the same money outlay in the end (besides wheels).

Since I'm guessing you're on a budget, here are some solid 205/55/15 suggestions:
o BFGoodrich G-Force Sport
o Fuzion ZRi
o Kumho Ectsa SPT

They're all cheap, and they'll all completely change the feel of your car. The BFG's the best in dry, the Fuzion's the cheapest, and the Kumho has the best wet traction. If it was my choice, I'd go for the newest model, the Kumho.

Anything else, shoot.
