Not sure how much they are new BUT I got a set of used (one season) Eagle Ultragrip's and they are EXCELLENT. Very quiet, lots of grip even in dry weather (better than my worn out Yokohamas!) and have a nice unidirectional tread that is very agressive looking. Got mine for $400 Cdn including 14" alloys!!!
Try the classifieds - I'm sure you'll come up with something.
If you have the money buy a good set like Nokia Hakkapelita's or the Michelin's they will cost more right now but in three to four years you will still be driving on the same set of snows. I have also heard that the new Good Year Tire is good. Check with your local VW dealer they have packages they get from VW and sometimes they might have a used set or two kicking around.
Just buy and install my 4 Toyo Observe G-02.... 473$cdn txinc installed...
As quiet as my summer tire... Try it in water.... Really nice, even better that the crap that was on my car this summer (don't ask what they were they were on the car when I buy it this summer)!! NOW I would like some snow !!!!
