I have to replace the OEM Firestone's on my daughter 2013 Cruze. I am looking for a tire that will have
great handling in wet and light snow conditions. She is a new driver and this would be a number one
priority. Any suggestions from people who live in snowy areas?

I like the top 3 in this list. The Pirelli is more of a ride comfort oriented tire; the Conti PureContact is more of a handling tire. The Premier A/S is somewhere in between - and pricey. The cool thing the Michelins do is uncover new sipes as the tread wears down to 4/32" so that traction does not degrade. I do find them a bit noisy, though.

I have Continental True Contacts on my 2013 RS and General Altimax RT43s on my 2014 LT. Both handle well haven't had any snow to try them in yet.

Anyone else from a snowy region that had tires last year that they were very happy with in snow and rain?

I live four hours north of you and have driven your stretches of I81 and I90 in snow storms.

This is the only tire I can recommend that will keep your daughter safe in all weather conditions. https://www.nokiantires.com/winter-tires/nokian-wrg3/

It is not always easy to get - and is not inexpensive. But it is less expensive than an insurance deductible: either auto or health.
