Www.tirerack.com has a tire decision guide which can help you to choose tires based on your personal needs...which we have no clue what they are. Tires are a personal purchase based on several factors like cost, noise, mileage warranty, handling, type of traffic, weather, highway driving, rural roads, suburban roads, etc...

Spend some time at TR's website and narrow down to some specific choices. Then inquire to the forum with a particular tire brand & model if you'd like more testimonials. :)

Bridgestone Blizzak's on all 4 corners. Remember, you want a skinnier tire for snow and ice. If you have stock 235/60 16 summer tires I would suggest 225/60 or 65 16 or maybe 215/65 or 70 16 for winter. I wouldnt go any skinnier than that. I lived in north Japan for 12 years and have tried many of snow tires. Have not seen the Dunlops snow tires I perfer, here in the states, but I did use the Blizzaks for a couple of seasons. They worked pretty well.

EDIT: Found them. Dunlop Graspic DS-3. Great snow tires.
