winter tires

I currently have the stock tires on my 07 wrx, but I want to get new summer and winter tires. What would you suggest first for the summer skins, but more importantly, what about winter? I am looking for good traction in snow, but I still want to spin and drift. I fear that the insane snow traction of Blizzaks or like tires will prevent me from my parking lot fun.

Well sure. This is my biased opinion but I'll recommend a cheaper tire and a nicer tire in each of the four classes. If you want a more impartial opinion, I suggest visiting Tire Rack's tire survey section. Here's a link:

Customer Tire Survey

Anyway, here are some tires to consider:

All Season
Cheap: Continental ContiExtremeContact
Nice: Yokohama Advan S.4.

Winter
Cheap: Dunlop Winter Sport 3D
Nice: Bridgestone Blizzak

Summer
Cheap: General Exclaim UHP
Medium: BF Goodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2
Nice: Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3

Max Performance
Cheap: Khumo Ecsta MX
Nice: Yokohama Advan Neova AD07

thx for moving this. I was gonna post it here, but I thought the question was so noobish that it belonged in the noob forum. I am still wondering about the "slippiness" of the Blizzaks in the snow. I'm guessing that with enough finesse they will slide, but a definitive answer would be nice...
thx to mosc as well for that link, gr8 info
