Yes I would consider a set of winter tires. What are some good winter choices for my car that you can suggest? Should I order tires with the rims attached, or just order the winter tires and have them put on my current rims. I'm not looking to spend a whole lot of money I'm thinking of staying with the 17" rims, two of my current 4 tires are pretty worn. I saw a post about performance winter tires. Thats probably what I would get.
Personally, I'd find a set of cheap 16" steelies, or used 16" rims from a Mazda 3, 5 or 6 from a junkyard or Craigslist, and get a set of 205/60-16s (the OEM size) for winter tires. Not only are the 16" tires less expensive than comparable 17" tires, but you also save the wear-and-tear of both the tires and rims, as well as not having to pay $20 per tire, to swap them on and off your OEM rims twice per year. I bought a set of 16" steelies with tires from Tirerack when I first got my '04, and I'm using them again on my '10 (with newer winter tires).
As for winter tires, I ran the Dunlop WinterSport M3, and they were excellent winter tires, offering great traction and control in rain, snow, slush, etc. as well as offering excellent handling for any "spirited" driving on the drier, sunny days (unlike regular winter tires that tend to get "sloppy"). The replacements, the WinterSport 3D, are also very good, and are used by more than a few other 6 owners. Michelin also makes some decent winter tires, as well as Continental with their new ExtremeWinterContacts.
I'd shy away from Bridgestone Blizzaks, since I've owned two different sets of them, and I've found that the useful winter treadlife to be lower than other brands. I've gotten more seasons of useful winter traction from all other brands.
