Looking for any advice on tire choices for winter driving in my 1992 240 Volvo. I grew up on snow country, but haven't owned a RWD vehicle since 1983!..... On my FWD or AWD vehicles, I've only used very good All Season tires and they performed admirably in most conditions. So, here are my questions....

* Looking for brands/types of snow tires for my '92 240 that somebody has used and likes....
* Thoughts on chains or Spider Spikes for Winter driving?
* I live in NYC and do tend to drive in most winter conditions....

add a set of any brand name like good year on bf goodrich et al snow tires mounted on a cheap set of steel rims and you should be fine. If going into really heavy duty snow country then buy yourself a set of caable chains in an auto parts store. good luck

Look up consumer reports for the best tire.I used michelin artic alpine(costco is cheapest place to buy)They were rated the best in braking and traction.All I can say is SIPPED!They were pushing snow that was all the way up to my door panals on my former 95' 850 wagon(FWD)They performed better than the studded snow tires I have on my 4wd pick up.I am really impressed with the sipped tire

I have Artic Alpin Snow and Ice Radials on my 91 240 as well. They work great.

Just a side note , at the local drag races in summer, for some, these are the tires of choice, they have that much bite. ( the rulebook considers them original equipment so they're legal).
