This is a great post, exactly on point. I researched Nokian a couple of years ago and gave up when the size for my car was not available at the time and went to Michelin winter tires on my Highlander Hybrid. They have been great for Vancouver to Whistler in rain and snow. Now my AllSeason tires are done so I plan to get these Nokian tires in the spring and I won't have to do twice a year changes. This post adds to 2 high recommendations from knowledgeable people in the industry, not tire dealers.
