This is not a brand new thread, but I got a lot of information about winter tires from it.

I want more cold weather grip in winter, before I consider my 4WD upgrade options. I want to max out what my Mirage is capable of first; and get the best I can out of the car with winter tires in the winter and all seasons just in the summer.
