I've read alot of people run winter tires?

I'm glad there are others out there that don't think my idea is completly insane.
If you run winters you'd spend money replacing them often if you spend 10 hours a day driving. You'd be better off getting rally wheels and tires. Team dynamics make good wheels, but find out the tire sizes for rally tires first, and buy the wheels after you find the tires. Rally tires don't come in many sizes.
