It was actually because you posted this in the cars for sale/wanted instead of the parts for sale/wanted.

thanks folks - sorry about the wrong forum for posting my request - I'll take the fail on that one

I am well aware of the tire specifications, and alluding to "bad weather" tires was meant simply to distinguish from my summer, hot weather sticky Michelins that would not perform at all in the colder temps on possibly slick roads. I plan to drive the car as much throught the year as I can, so I need a good all season for the fall, winter and spring, and save my sticky P-Zeros for the summer driving. So yes, it was a "fail" to not get specific on that little point but I assumed you folks would know just what I was getting at without adding this additional detail

Continental DWS for colder climates. Very popular, and lightweight too.
