so what size 15" tire did you fit for winter? I may have missed it in your posts.
The marketing group is supposed to issue a set of snow tires for us to use, but they have yet to get that done. I drove the ST in the snow with the factory RE050A Bridgestones. I don't know if they are going to give us 17" snow tires and mount them on the existing wheels, or give us a set of 16" or 15" wheels with snow tires installed. We are scheduled to get more snow this week and don't have any snow tires to install.
All season tires don't make sense most places but they really do in Seattle. The problem is that we have no idea if we're going to see snow at all but when we do see it we can easily get 4-6". Some years are like last year where we got no snow at all so dedicated snow tires would have been a waste of money while other years we've had a week or two with snow total where they would have been useful but one could also have simply stayed at home. So this is where all-seasons are worth it as if there is snow you can make it home from work but if there isn't you're not wearing out $300 - $500 worth of rubber each winter for no reason. The DWS work well in all weather and IMHO they are the best tire got our climate.

When I was at the school in August, I learned that those guys hate all season tires more than I do. I felt like I was in a place where people really understand me. So, you guys have a bunch of a Fiestas, like to go sideways, and hate all season tires? Fantastic, this must be heaven.

They do take out the elbow eating armrest when building rally cars!
