My answer: Winter tires. I picked up a set of Michelin xIce i3's on steelies over Christmas. It's like night and day. Now bombing around in slush, freezing rain, snow, whatever is fine. They're also a touch quieter than my factory 17's.
Now if only the dealer would get my block heater fixed.
I plan on buying a new set of wheels with summer tires on them (Tirerack) in the spring of 2014 so next winter, when my stock tires are getting thin, I'll put winter tires on my stock rims. Best of both worlds (please, no references to Miley Virus)...
