Best snow tires I've ever heard of were the Dunlop Sport M3, and as you can see by clicking the Tire Rack link at the bottom of this site, they are rated pretty high. Now, since you like the way your rims currently look and salt will eat right through them, and also since it does not snow all the time, I recommend having the winter tires mounted on some cheapo rims from Pep Boys or something for like $200 for all 4 rims so that way you don't worry about harming your nice rims in the snow. Plus, if you come out one morning, and it's not snowing and you need to go somewhere, your ride is going to suck on winter tires, so you can just jack the car up, put on the regular rims, and drive off.
