You ever want to taunt people in their fancy, 4-Wheel drive cars, or their giganto SUV's as they drive like idiots in the snow? Well, try passing all of these folks, some even with chains on, going up 6000 feet of vertical on a twisty road, covered in ice and hard-pack snow in a VW Eurovan....

Recently put these tires on my Eurovan, and it is BULLETPROOF in the snow/ice. Haven't done deep snow yet, but done quite a bit on ice and hard-pack, and they blow my Nokian Hakka R's out of the water. I'm not joking when I say that my vehicle is performing better than a Subaru (without snows) in these conditions.

These tires are quieter than my summer tires....uber quiet on the highway, very plush ride, and overall, I'm amazed. Best studless snow on the market...period. This, coming from a lifelong driver in harsh conditions.
