I just put a set of four Vredestein Wintrac snows on my 98 528i manual. I researched the snow tire products and learned that the Vredesteins were one of the few H rated snows, so wouldn't lose much in the way of handling performance. However, we just had our first snow storm here in New Jersey and the car was all over the road. I didn't feel I had good traction on the snow-pack. Also, I'm experiencing a bit of vibration in the steering wheel when I reach speeds of 65 mph plus with these tires. I didn't have that with the Michelins under the Anyone have similar experiences with these tires? Any suggestions on what I can do?
