    Searched two places and only found a couple of posts, which were good. Anyone here have any experience with them?

    The V12's are nice but haven't heard anything on the V2 Jim.

    Looks like it could be a pretty good tire for you especially for the snow conditions. For me, since I don't drive my MINI in the snow, I'll probably go with the V12 when it's time for a replacement.

    Thanks guys. In my case 195X50X15 does not leave a lot of choices. I take it a Hankook is a good brand?

    Just had my 195X50 R15's installed and I think I have done it right this time. Between tires and wheels I have dropped five pounds per corner. Acceleration is vastly improved and they hold the twisties great. Smaller, stiffer side wall and I really don't notice a difference in ride quality. I'm certain my wife will however. :Thumbsup:

    BTW: NO, wheel gap has never bothered me at all. Beauty is, what beauty does. :D

    That's great! Now just be careful in those 35 mph speed limit roads! ;-)
