Hmmm...OK.  Maybe I'll have to call a few places like that.  I wonder
if there's any chance of the Erie place by the track having them?

Yeah, I'll probably get Blizzaks.  I could easily get a set already
mounted and balanced on steel wheels from the Tire Rack, but I'd
really rather have the factory alloys.

It ought to, I assume you have the traction control.  My mom's Mystique
does, and it's great in snow, both with the stock GT+4s and now Dunlop
D60s.  I imagine you give up a little with the GSCs.  So do you guys know
