[Biturbos4] Tire Recomendation?

True, but how about winter tires?  The best winter tires (best snow and ice traction) are often only Q-rated (less then H), anything higher you're sacrificing snow/ice traction for higher speed capability.  What would the tire shop say then?  Force you to get V-rated winter tires?  Mind you they do exist but are $$$ and I doubt the average tire shop can even get them!
