howdy...welcome to the forums.Your year is very moddable and the lightest of the series II body styes, it does not take much cash to get into the 13s with it...without cam, IC or heads. Oh wait did you say this is your winter car...
For tires, dont mess around with all seasons, go a straight studless winter tire. It makes these cars act like they have 4 wheel drive.
struts are going to be a "decision" if you have the computer command ride (you probably do)
brakes...go ceramic up front with the nicest rotors they sell at NAPA, no warping so far. make sure you get the rears adjusted properly as they often are out of adjustment and the auto adjusters never work right.
