I too was concerned about the stock Michelins in the snow. I picked up a set of Blizzaks and find they work great. I have had the car out in 6 inches of snow with no problems. Definite improvement over the all-seasons I was using on my Acura. I picked up mine from Tire Rack along with a set of rims. The tires are a little small (185-65R15s) for dry but they do work well in snow. In the past, I found Michelins were about the worst tire in the snow so I installed my snows before the first snow fall. They do hurt the dry performance so take it easy on your first drive. This is especially true before the mold release works its way out.
