    I live in Cincinnati. We probably have 3-5 snowfalls per year. I have always ran snow tires. However, for my 2012 CTS V Coupe I'm going to go with Goodyear all season F1 asymmetric's. The front size is now available. I contacted Goodyear and it informed me that the rear size will be available in December. I'm going to tiptoe on my Michelin Pilot PS2's until then with an old RAV4 if necessary.

    I ran the Blizzak LM60's last winter...hardly a winter though. Drove them in one snowstorm and they handled pretty darn good considering the car. The PS2's get really hard when it gets to around 40. More like driving on hockey pucks

    For cold but not too snowy climates, try the Continental ExtremeContact DWS...

    Starting the 3rd winter on Pirelli Sottozeros in the stock, staggered sizings on a second set of factory wheels. These tires are a high performance winter tire and simply amazing for cold weather dry traction. I lose virtually nothing in terms of steering response as well as the way the car handles and rides. They perform similarly on cold wet roads. Great on ice and 4"-5" of snow. I've really never had to use them in deep, deep snow, but I'm very impressed by how they get through whatever snow depths I've had to drive through. Between these tires, the electronic nannies, a light foot and good judgement, this is the easiest car to drive in the winter that I've ever owned. I believe there are winter tires available that are better in more severe conditions, but aren't as good at being able to let you enjoy the V's handling and power capabilities in the winter.

    Best regards,

    Elie

    I am running the hankook icept evo's and they seem to work quite well considering they are on a 4300 lb 560hp RWD car. The hankooks get a lot of decent reviews as well. I have snow here for at least 5 months out of the year.

    I have them in the 255 40 19 size all the way around.

    Cheers!
