Yeh, Right, ever try to collect on one of those ?

Are they V rated ?
No Experience with the AVS U+4s, but I do have experience with Tire
Rack. Against the recommendation of a 'lister' (Andrew Duane and his Pal)
I bought Pirelli P500's because Tire Rack said they had better grip
and were quieter than the BFG Comp T/A's. They were wrong. The P500's
are ok on Snow/Wet, but they S**K on dry. Andrew had had a pair of
P500's and told me not to buy them. Since then he now has the Comp T/A
and seems pretty happy :-) Did I get that Right Andrew ?
The listers here have nothing to gain by steering you one way or
another, but Tire Rack Does. They may have a better profit margin
on the AVS or there overstocked, or maybe they're actually are
Caveat Emptor my friend....
Now stepping down from my soapbox :-)
