C4S Winter tires?

I'm strongly considering a C4S as a daily driver and would need winter tires for the winters in the rockies. Would love to hear what others are using for tires. Will 17's fit in there or have you found winter tires of for the 18's?

Get some stock narrow body 17in wheels, with good snow tires.

Really, it might not be the best car for snow, the AWD system is mostly RWD, & only puts a max of 37% to the front.

I realize this isn't the best snow car, but it will be good enough for where i live.

The 17's will fit over the turbo brakes?

Thanks for your help

Yup, but you should still do a test fit, some aftermarket ones might not.
