Another sourcce of the squirm can come from the deeper tread depth; causing
more tread squirm.
This is also most likely in conjuction with softer sidewalls on the snow

thanks for the feedback folks.. it seems the general consensus is to run all
4 snows to increase stability/handling even tho the rear wheels arent drive
my question is - if i go out and spend another $150 on 2 more snow tires for
the rears of her '86 5k NON-Q will this solve the problem? or are snow tires
just not meant for high speed freeway driving? (80% of her commute is on
turnpike ay 75-80mph) thats where she complained about the "squirrelyness"
on the highway, not around town.
