Smaller tires are better in the snow. 18s are the smallest you can go and still clear the sport brakes.

One thing I don't miss since moving south is shoveling snow.

More importantly narrower tires are better in snow due to the fact that they don't float as much as a wider tire.

Right - wider tires are described as being more like a plow in the snow.. you don't want that.

I also got a square set (all the same size tires/wheels) so they can be rotated when it comes time.

This and the compound are the most important. Don't be a dumba$$ and get 305's to look cool in the snow.

No worries, half the state lost power. The OP can probably spend sometimes in the car as that's the only thing that has power...

I just got home from the beach. Branches are all around the house, some might have glanced off the roof. Driveway is blocked with huge branches and ice/snow on it. To make it worse, the Z is being blocked in by the snow and it is blocking the snowblower in the basement. I am screwed. It's freezing cold in the house too, 44 degrees right now
