I got 17inch Blizzaks and they are god sent in this snow and ice in NYC! The best mod i made on my I S thus far. It really works. I gotta than Zoku and Triz for their input in helping me make my decision. No fear of snow anymore! I plowed thru 18inch snow drifts this past weekend.

DtEW, Thanks, interesting article. The last sentence sums up why I opted for all seasons for my climate.

"And finally, unless snow or ice covers your roads many times in a winter, the snow benefits of winter tires may not outweigh their drawbacks on dry pavement."

On Carpoint there are user ratings for every car, and what struck me as most interesting (I thought) was someone complaining that the IS300 sucks in the snow. It sounded like he didn't mount snow tires on his IS300 (hmm..17" tires & summer tires in the snow, great idea), despite his claim that he had years of experience driving in the snow (probably in a FWD car too).
