Did you say what kind of winter priorities you have?
Lowest risk of rim damage?
Longer tread life?
Better handling on bare roads?
Lowest overall cost?
You generally have to choose: Studless ice&snow or performance winters.
You can have all of this, if you have two cars ;-)
I also run M6x18-W300 Hancooks from SimplyTire - you just have to keep your traction control on, feather the throttle, and be careful on ice. Use a square set-up, no wider than 225.
