We just had our first light dusting of snow here and I put on a set of Goodyear F1 A/S tires (tyres). I am using stock size (255/35-19") on the stock wheels. I am very satisfied!! No slipping or sliding from a standing start. I did notice the ABS cutting in on one stop where there was heavy ice but I also noticed that sensation in a Subaru. Granted, I don't have the snow that a Canadian or Northern European would have but I will be heading up to Lake Tahoe ski areas which should have plenty. I will report back later on how they work in heavier snow and how they are on clear roads at speed.
