I think the best "snow" tire you can buy is the Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT. The company is from Finland and is a division of the cell phone company. Their tires are highly rated and used on many winning rally race cars. I have them on my Pilot , Jeep TJ, Volkswagon VR6 and they perform like no other on ice and snow. Live in western Canada and believe me it snows up here. Check them out at www.nokiantires.com.
