IMHO, the only "all-season" tires that are good in any snow have the severe-service snowflake emblem on them. There are very few all-seasons that have that capability, and they probably are not the cheapest in any line.

The key to good winter performance is clearing the snow/slush/liquid from the tire and lots of edges that can bite into whatever surface is available. I would go shopping at your favorite full-line tire store and look for the tire that looks most like rated for snow.

check the wrecking yards, you might find a complete set on wheels for less than the price of 2 cheap tires. its a common tire size, and more than just the sentra uses the same wheel bolt pattern. wont hurt to go up or down a size if you find a good deal.
