1: I got Nokian WRG2 All Season tires - these are the absolute best AS tires on the market for snow/slush/ice in my opinion. They are AS tires that perform better in snow than most snow tires out there. I used snow tires 1 winter, Blizzaks, and the Nokian WRG2 is just as good in snow, and better on hard packed snow and ice than the Blizzaks. The WRG2 is designed to bridge the gap between AS and snow tires.
2. Storing 4 tires is a pain in the ass, takes up too much room in the garage.
^^^^^^ YES!!! The WR was great and the WR G2 has been great too. We've had several sets of both and have the WR G2 currently on our small AWD/4WD SUV. There's a WR G3 out now too, so I imagine the WR G2 is pretty well phased out at this point, and there is no choice but the WR G3. I am told though that the WR G3 is even better, but they went back to directional (WR was directional, but the WR G2 wasn't). The WR G3 no longer comes big enough for our big AWD/4WD SUV but the Nokian Rotiva AT is their bigger winter rated year-round tire and that worked out well for us last winter and so far this winter. With two SUVs having 8 winter tire/wheels to store is way too much trouble when these year-round winter rated tires work so well. BTW, with both of our SUVs when the TPMS light is on then both vehicles' computers will not let you disable (turn off) the Traction Control / Vehicle Stability Control-Assist.
