BF Goodrich g-force Super Sport A/S http://www.discounttire.com/video/BFGSuperSportAS.html

They incorporate Michelin's newly used technology that allows different compounds in the same tread. They are reportedly decent in light snow and pull excellent times wet and dry.

Ive been very satisfied with my Michelin Pilot Sport Plus A/S tires. They were a little pricey but with the 45000mi warranty they should pay for themselves. While anything is better than the RE92s, these are probably the quietest/stickiest set of tires Ive ever owned.

They're also made in the USA

I know it is a little hard to tell in the picture, but these are Nokian WR G2s on Legacy GT 17" rims....my wife's car!! They are great tires and actually work in the snow as well as they do in the dry/wet of the Pacific Northwest.
Set up is; OEM LGT rims - 17x7 with 215/45/17 G2s Looks good - works great

I've been running a new set of Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS since the beginning of this month and I did fine with all the snow recently. I paid $112 a piece on tirerack.com. Keep in mind these are one of the top of the line UHPAS out there so there are tons of cheaper alternatives if the price is too high. If I didn't have AWD I would definitely spring out for a separate spring/summer/fall and winter setup.
