I wouldn't drive on the F1's period, they have NO snow rating because they are dedicated high performance summer tires.  Even if it doesn't snow, the summer tires will still experience slippage due to cold weather.

Subject: [Biturbos4] Winter Tire Help

Having just moved to the North East (Western Mass.), I'm exposed to
extreme weather conditions for the first time in my S4 and need some help
with winter tires.

First, a question about the tires I have: I currently have Goodyear Eagle
F1 (225/45ZR17) tires on my car which are great in the wet, but when
leaving Boston last night, I felt like I was slipping everywhere--were it
not for Quattro, there's no way I would have made it.  Anyone know how I
can find out what the Snow Rating for these tires is?

Secondly, what are reccomendations for good winter tires.  I've looked at
the surveyresults on the TireRack site:


Any suggestions?
