As long as your snow is only very light, then the Falken Ziex 512 is very hard to beat in all around performance, regardless of price. And they are very, very reasonably priced!! Actually, I do believe they are being superseded by the new Ziex 912, but pricing is still very low. These tires have incredible wet traction as well as dry. Several of my friends have them on their PTs and I have a set on an older Camaro that I really like.

I have been really pleased with Continental Extreme Contacts.

A little bit of noise on some surfaces, but with my exhaust and intake mods the tire noise in not noticed.

Compare Prices and Read Reviews on Continental ContiExtremeContact at Epinions.com

A fine choice if your driving includes rain and snow.

While the Michenlin Harmony is a good tire...It is a very soft tire and lacks the handling. The Michelin Hydro Edge is about the best you can get...a smooth ride great handlening and super in the rain....If you can afford it...they are the best...Turbo or not.....

I agree. I had the Hydro Edge on my '04 PT light Turbo. 80 or 90k tire that performs well and gives the best ride. I wish they made the right size for my
'05 GT, I'd buy 'em in a minute.
