Nokian tires.  While evaluating many '91 200 for sale classifications over
the past 8 months, I noticed many had Nokian tires especially for winter
use in New England area.

I just put a set of Nokians on each of my '91s.
     '91 100 quattro 10v: Nokian P195/65HR15 Hakka NRW; $460 w/installation
     from local independent tire store-Norm's Tire here in Little Canada,
     '91 200 20v tqa: Nokian P205/60R15  WR; $450 w/installation from Keith
     Anderson of Anderson Motorsport here in Chanhassen MN.

I'm told that these Nokians are a all-weather as well as a performance
tire.  They call them 'all-weather plus'.  So far I'm convinced...improved
cornering, less lean in corners, very good handling all around and low
noise level.  I do, however, notice all cracks and pavement imperfections,
which I suppose has to be expected with a tire with these characteristics.
Other all-weather tires I have liked on my 100 quattro were Goodyear Eagles
which I drove year-round (freeway commuting  mostly) for 60k miles.  I
expect a better tire was available back then, from European and Japanese
sources, but I was unfamiliar with their versions.

Hope this helps,

I need to put a set of winter tires on my car this week, and am looking for
suggestions/recommendations. The following are the conditions they will be
 - winter time only (Nov-Mar) in Seattle
 - normal daily commuting
 - just about every weekend to the Cascades
 - stock 15" wheels
 - not looking for high performance or long life
