Yep, traction in this car is a joke when it's cold out. You really got to pay attention to the weather with these tires, otherwise you'll take a turn and it might not work out too well.

These tires are night and day depending on the weather. I will be going with Michelin PSS's, but not 100% how much better they are in the cold as they are also Summer High Performace. I will find out.

Don't run your car with with the Goodyears when it's under 20 degrees F. You will be buying new ones. As it is they don't last that long anyway.

You have to pay to play.

I just purchased Michelin Pilot Super Sports to replace the Goodyears and I can confirm that the traction is MUCH better in the cold weather. Night and day difference.
