Looking to outfit my T-5 with (4) 16 inch rims and snow tires. This is my first Volvo. What kind of snow ability will this car have? <P>A) go for a ride in the snow just for fun <BR>B) gets you home with confidence <BR>C) gets you home with white knuckles <BR>D) bring a sleeping bag to the office if they predict snow <P>Any thoughts on which model of tire would provide decent dry road handling and still be good in the white fluffy? <P><BR>

I use 15" blizzaks on my V70 98 XC wagon.<BR>Mz-02 I believe. The thing is a snowmobile.<BR>60, 65, 70, 75 MPH on the snow assuming it's nice dry snow.<P>Go here to get informed:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.tirerack.com/winter/index.jsp" TARGET=_blank>http://www.tirerack.com/winter/index.jsp</A>

Hey Carlos. DSTC, right? I'm going with Blizzak MX-01, expect A) from what I read, and hope for better-than-abysmal dry perf. See TireRack test.

It seems like the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-22 tires are the most favored. The folks over at Audiworld seem to prefer them as well, even with their Quattro system.<P>-Drew
