RE: high speed winter tars!

Hear, hear.

Our 200q with 195/65-15 W210Ps did extremely well this weekend on ice
and through slush and snow. Very quiet and stable. It does tend to hunt
more than the 215/60-15 D40-M2s we run in the summer though - no biggie
and not enough to prevent me from recommending them, although I'd
probably take a wider size next time.
