Rob, the D60's are one of the "darling" tires of the quattro set, mostly
because they're good performers dry or wet and are pretty cheap.
I had them on my old 5000 and would not recommend them for winter.
If that's your priority, you might do better with a softer tread compound
or at least one that doesn't act like ice skates on ice.  BTW I usually
use snow tires in the winter (skiing), so my viewpoint is biased to cold-
weather performance.  I have D60's on my Miata, but that gets parked
all winter.  Nice tire the rest of the time.
