Best Snow Tire for Focus Electric

Bought the car yesterday and will be running it all winter in the Rockies so I need some aggressive tires. Seriously considering getting a set of Sparco wheels to make a dedicated winter wheel set that also looks Rally.

Anyone know the offset and full spec on the stock wheels?

Consider the skinniest tire that maintains the stock overall tire diameter and load requirements. What size tires came on the electric version?

Having a dedicated snow tire on a separate wheel set will save you money (as long as you don't go crazy with your wheel selection) over the long run.

Some good snow tire options include Nokian (aka Hakka's, the Cadillac of snow tires), Bridgestone Blizzaks, Michelin X-Ice and General Altimax Arctics (the budget tire of the bunch but still a very good snow tire)
