tapaughCan someone recomend snow tires for a 2000 Volvo V70 with front wheel drive. I live in New Jersey and much of the time am driving on dry roads but we still have our share of ice and snow too. Good handling is a concern. Thanks!
bikorI got Michelin Arctic Alpins for my car, after checking Consumer reports. It's capabilities are a little better rounded, compared to other snow tires - decent dry and wet handling, rather than great on snow and ice, and lousy at everything else.

They are a very quiet tire, especially for a snow tire, although I understand they can make silly noises in particularly wet conditions sometimes.

They have a unique design, with all kinds of little sipes everywhere. I was wondering the method to the madness until I finally got to drive them in snow -- snow hardly hangs on to the tires, so they come in contact with the ground, rather than snow-covered tires touching snow.

I've driven with other snow tires, and these perform fine on ice and snow. I put these on my new Subaru, and even though I've pushed the envelope a little, I have no complaints. Sure-footed.

EdAnother tire to consider is the Nokian NRW. I put these on my 1998 Volvo S70. They are very good in the snow,are quiet, and have good dry handling. They are a T speed rated tire which gives much better dry handling than most snow tires which are Q rated. They can also have a H rated version which you might want to consider.
ClendenningI will strongly recommand that you look for
the Nokian, I am driving a C70 FWD 1999, live
in N.Y State and they are just great. As far
as the Michelin are concern, they are so good
(???????)that there is a rumor running in the
tire industry that they gonna be replace by
a new one again in 2000!!!!!
