My present winter ride is a Lexus 430 SC, which normally uses 18" or 19" rims that are pretty wide. For my Blizzaks I use 16" Toyota wheels.
I'll go one further (for snow driving):

A narrow tire with an aggressive winter tread is best for snow traction.

I got the whole setup for about 500 bucks all said and done, much less than I thought it would be. I don't plan on taking this car out in the snow deliberately, I mainly got these because it gets quite cold around my parts (currently in the single digits/teens), and in the event that it started snowing i would be able to at least get home. Comparing against the eagle F1's, it's a massive step in the right direction. Maybe next year I'll look into narrower rims (recommendations welcome)
