Is anyone running Nexen Roadian HP SUV - 255/60R17 106V Tires? Sam's club tire. For Texas weather, I think they will be good.

The following test doesn't cover a wide selection of tires so results with different tires could be different but the test parameters are in a controlled environment:

This one talks about 16-17-18 differences:

Choice of tires or size can change normal handling characteristics such as turn-in, understeer or oversteer. It is very difficult to achieve balanced handling for any X5. Normal is an understeer. If winter tires increase understeer that's not good IMO. I would much rather it turn better and have to bring the rear back in line than go straight when I am trying to turn.

Results charts here:

Edit: The commentary that the reviewer makes in the video about the real winter (nordic) tire vs. the regular winter tire is backed up by my experience as well. Nothing touches a true winter tire on icy surfaces. "Performance" winter tires feel like all seasons, just a little bit better in icy conditions.

That's the same video I posted. The conclusion of the video was all season tires were best option except in areas of heavy snow and ice. And if those conditions happen a few times a winter, all season tires are still the best choice. So unless one is in an area of long winters with lots of heavy snow and ice winter tires are not the best option. Also that in all categories budget tires will not deliver the best results.

As for what summer, all season or winter tires are best there is a lot of subjective conclusions. It's like determining the benefit of engine mods using a butt dyno.

Yes, I know. But they have the results charts on their page if you don't want to watch the video.

What summary? I don't see a summary. I posted my version of a summary but I strongly suggest those following thread watch the entire video.

The charts weren't visible until I tapped on them on the mobile site.

If you go to the "featured comment," they have the results charts from the video.

IMO the charts are insufficient without the commentary.

Many folks are not going to watch a video. I usually won't, although I did in this case. Like with most of these videos, it's about a paragraph of meaningful commentary spread out over nearly a quarter of an hour.
