Hehe ... nice wish list!!  Well, whatever you do (16" or 17" in preparation
for Stoptech brakes) definitely go with 4 winter tires.  I have four 16"
winter Toyos that I'm pretty happy with.

Quattro is great for traction to get going, but with the exception of
4-wheel engine braking, it doesn't help on turning or braking.  The tires'
friction with the road is wholly responsible for that and any drive I ever
took, tended to include some of each!  ;0)
