Default Buying New Tires

Hey, I have a question about buying a new set of tires, since mine are going bald and stareting to lose some tread. Right now I have High Performance All-Season BF Goodrich Traction T/A H 16 inches with Sport Edition CD Bright Satin w/ Machined Lip, which I really like these wheels. These were driven in the snow, which responded well. So, I don't feel like changing the size of the tires and wheels since that will cost more and be way out of my budget. I've done a little research and found a few tires (FYI-I still plan to drive in the snow with the new tires I am going to purchase soon):
1. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....peed_rating=(Y)
2. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....e1=yes&place=1
3. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....ce+T%2FA+KDW+2
So, what do you think? I just want to get your input or expertise on these tires or if you have any other tires in mind that I should get instead. To let you know I have an Impreza Sedan 2.5i
Thanks

both tires #2 and #3 are summer performance tires which will not go through snow at all so, #1 is your only real choice out of those three tires

for more info call me directly or use this LINK
