Just wondering whether the SP5000 or the D60A2 would be better for my 318is (1995) in wet condtion as well as teh occasional snow in Vancouver, BC Canada?

Thx in advance!

In prue snow traction the two will probabaly be very comparable, a slight edge to the 5000 mainly because it is a newer tire and simply new technology gave considerations to better all round characteristsics. A better determination in this case would be exactly what you are looking for beyond snow traction. Wet traction will be better on the 5000 and it is a higher performance rated tire than the D60A2.
Both are good products, you just need to determine what level of performance you desire as much as snow or wet traction. I am currently running on 5000's and it's one of the best all season ultra high performance tires I have had.
