I have a C4 customer who liked his Michelin Pilot Alpins so much he started=
 running them year round, until a couple auto crosses took them away. He ha=
d them in 17's, don't remember the exact size. A number of IT racers use th=
em in the winter on cleared but cold pavement (http://www.aksportscarclub.o=
rg/Rondy2002.htm). I also have several customers using the Arctic Alpin yea=
r round on more mundane vehicles, they seem to good for 30-40K miles. The a=
bsolute best winter tire is still the Nokian Hakkapelitta with studs.
