I also have standard halogen headlights that seem a little weak, any suggestions for a brighter 55W bulb without going either the HID route or Xenon?
Welcome to the forum

Only experienced one set of Blizzaks so far (WS70's on my Evo X) and found them to be quite decent, if a little soft. I've tried several sets of winter tires so far, and I thought the Toyo Garit KX were very good.....harder than the Blizzaks for sure, but still relatively soft for a 'performance' winter. Dunlop Wintersport M3's were quite good too.

No recent experience with halogens to be fair, but I'd imagine a decetn set of Philips +50% bulbs or similar might make a tangible difference.
