     I also wanted the Goodrich Comp TA VR4s, but couldn't find them in 
     stock for a 90Q at any S. Florida tire dealer (special order tires are 
     okay until you have to deal with a quick replacement!)  I got Pirelli 
     P4000s instead, and hated them.  They had a rough ride and were lousy 
     in wet conditions.  
     After 3 weeks I finally went back to the tire shop and used the ride 
     guarantee (if in doubt, go to NTW - they will let you swap tires with 
     no questions asked) and swapped the Pirelli's for Michelin MX4's, 
     which I am happy with.  The MX4s are especially good in the wet, which 
     was my major concern.  Can't comment on snow handling - sorry.  The 
     Michelin's were about $80 each.
     Good luck
