General Altimax Artics. Best bang for the buck winter tire out there I think. I would not hesitate to buy/run them again.

The Firestone Winterforces also get pretty good reviews and is another excellent value.

Yep I did/do. I picked up a set of OEM alloys for the Fusion and mounted the winter tires on them. For my current car I lucked out this summer and came across a set of Firestone Winterforces mounted on MSW alloys. Came off a guy's 2010 GTI, used just one winter. Tires still have the nubs on them.

Makes for much easier swapping out in the winter/spring and you're exposing your nicer summer wheels to less chance of damage during the mounting/dismounting of the winter tires twice a year.
