    Nope.

    All-seasons for winters and summer-onlys for summers

    I need Snow tires my yokohama all seasons are trash in the snow. Would I be able to get A winter wheels and tires set for 800-900, that would work well?

    TireRack.com has Bridgestone Blizzak Revo 1 snow tires which are a great tire on closeout for like $80 each... get a set of rims for them from as well and they will mount and balance them and ship them to you. Should be pretty close to ure price range.

    I got those tires and a set of decent looking rims last year for like $850. They were fantastic in the snowy/icy mix we usually get here in philly. Just do it quick cause they will sell out of those REVO1's pretty soon im sure.

    They are not a performance tire they are a snow tire... so its gonna impact your driving in the dry. I can feel a definate difference between my summer tires and my winter. Its not gonna handle as well as a low profile stiff summer or even an all season, and doesnt stop quite as well. You're gonna get that with any snow tire. They are designed for snow. Tire rack has a great and informative rating system for the tires on the site, so u can look around and judge for yourself.

    They're $120/tire for me.

    I have Blizzak WS-60s that I got for ~$1000 with 4 ASA wheels. I prefer them to the Revo 1 (which I had on my last car) simply because of the tread design seems to better fit the demand where I live - Revo 1 are better in dryer conditions and ride comfort, but for me, the WS-60s are a better tire. They're a really good tire. My family has been using Blizzak tires for many years, and they've never let us down.

    I thought you were supposed to just keep the gas hammered down the e-brake in the right hand and practice the "Scandinavian flick" around every corner.

    Silly me.

    One thing to note, in all my winters driving through the Sierras, I have seen more Subaru outbacks flipped in snow banks than any other car. I also have had more of them pass me at outrageous speeds in teh snow. Funny how that correlates.
