Second what Ekam says about Nokian Tires.

I've lived in Switzerland and Norway where winter tires are legally required after times of the year and where -- especially in Switzerland -- the roads can be challenging.

I'll never use any other winter tire than a Nokian. I felt glued to the road. The tread life is not good -- but that's the trade off. I wouldn't hesitate to drive a Boxster in the winter. But I would absolutely not do so with "all weather" tires. You need to protect yourself and others with the best winter tire you can afford.

At this point I live in the US where winter tires are not mandatory -- but every November I put on the Nokians.
