I would recommend tirerack for a nice winter set-up. Without forcing my personal recommendations/preferences on you, I would say there are many set-ups that will get you through the snow in the winters. You may alter your wheel/tire depending on the type of driving, type of snow you get, how much snow, etc. etc.

Take a look in the wheels/tires section of this forum for many threads on the subject. Also you may PM ben@tirerack, he can help you figure everything out and walk you through the process that is best for you. He is also a great guy!

Good luck and happy thanksgiving!

TireRack works wonderful they will ship directly to your house by UPS. Based on there stock availability you can expect shipment a few days after you ordered.

You can also ship direct to the local tire shop (just arrange with them so they can call you when the shipment arrives).

I first, however, recommend you check out this forum and on the internet if anyone sells a tire/wheel set that fits your car. You may save at least $1,000- I did last year.

Do this Google Search: Tire wheel winter set for sale NYC area

You will see what is out there ... also check this forums "Classified Section" before you purchase new. The Moderator of this form does not like us to post links to other sites otherwise I would give you more links. You find them if you "search" and "Google" ...
