Default Tires

I soon will be buying new cobra wheels to replace my old ones and I want to keep the old ones for the winter time. What are the best tires to put on them to run in the winter on my 02 GT that will be getting near 400RWHP by next winter? I know these cars arent meant for the snow or bad weather conditions, but I would like to know what tires would be the best for cold and possibly snowy conditions. Thanks

If you have to deal with a lot of snow I would suggest a dedicated snow tire like Blizzaks or Continental winter. My experiance with winter tires is they are great in the colder weather but really handle strange in rain so consider that if your winter is more rain than snow

I live in West Virginia. We get quite a bit of snow during the winter months but we do also see some rain and a lot of wintry mix.

I have a set of Blizzaks arriving today! Any dedicated winter tire will do well for you. I've never heard anything but praise about Blizzaks.
