S4 in the snow!

Hello fellow Q-heads,

I hope everyone had a great holiday free of Quattro Qatastrophies! 
;)  Here in North Central Iowa, the end of the holiday weekend
also marked the start of a decent winter storm.  I awoke Monday
morning to find about 4 inches of fresh powder on the ground... I
was thinking "Cool, now I can see what the S4 is like in the
snow!".... hmmmmm... well, it really wasn't too bad in the fresh
powder so I tossed the keys to my father so he could drive it to
work.  Later that day he returned from work and I asked him what
he thought of it in the snow.  He replied by saying something about
an "unguided missle" or something along those lines!  ;)  Needless
to say, I was somewhat surprised, so I decided to take it out for
a drive once more... WHOA!  He was right!  The streets had now been
packed down and were solid snow and ice -this is about the time I
wish it didn't have such wide low-profile tires on it... YIKES!  

SO, now we're SERIOUSLY interested in finding a second set of
wheels with snow tires on them.  Does anyone else out there drive
an S4 in the snow?  Would the wheels from a 100 series fit on an
S4?  I saw an S4 in Minneapolis that was wearing a set of hiddeous
looking steel wheels and snow tires... we'd still like something
that looks halfway decent.  Any ideas or recommendations out there?
