    youd be better looking at part worns if thats really all you can afford. Or buy smaller wheels and sell the snowies.

    The reviews arent all exactly positive

    I would look at Evergreen's, you "should" be able to find some for that money, they are grippy and quiet.

    Alternatively Altenzo Sport Comforters, they are below your budget (www.tyretraders.com) and again are grippy and low noise (not as quiet as Evergreens, but a damn sight quieter than most budget brands).

    I would not look at part worns in this size, they are very susceptible on the Vectra to make a right racket with the slightest hint of uneven wear, and you can't guarantee a decent even tread wear with part worns of this size.

    I ran Falken 942's on my front snowflakes bought online from camskills at just over a ton. Absolutely fine in all respects.
