Hello All,

At the risk of opening a can of worms, I have a snow tire question.  I have=
 two sets of snows, Blizzacks and Michelin Artic Alpins.  Both are used, bu=
t in very good condition, both are 205/55/16.  My wife drives her A6Q about=
 40 miles on a variety of roads to get to work, I drive my 200 about 10 mil=
es on mainly highways.  Which tires for which cars?  Obviously, I think I s=
hould put the more grippy tires on the A6.  Anybody tried both?

I read the reviews on the tire sites, but I can't get much from them; most =
reviews compare all-seasons to snows (no comparison), or snows-on-this-car =
to snows-on-that-car (different sizes?).
