Re: high speed winter tars!

<<I am suffering the agony of to many choices.  I hope some of you can help.
I have a S6 wagon for which I need boots.  I live in the Boston area but
drive on the highway a fair amount in the winter.  How is the performance of
the Hakkas in the dry and/or at speed?  Would you recommend then for urban
use albeit in a high snow area?  Two tire people who sounded as though they
were knew what they were talking about have pitched Pirelli P210s to me.
Any comment?  TIA for all info.  Y'all are the best resource I have seen.>>

The Euro Merc and BMW owners all use H rated P210s for Autobahn work during the
winter. It depends what you want, ice traction, snow traction, slush traction
etc.  Everything is a compromise but the 210 seems to be the best for highways
where short of major ice storms and big freezes, you are dealing with packed
snow and slush and have sustained high speed opportunities at 55!
