Summary: Tough Tire!!
July 7th, 2013
I spent several years looking for a tire for my VW Eurovan Weekender that wouldn't leave me stranded with multiple flat tires out in the gravel & two-tracks of South Eastern Oregon.

The Nokian WR C Van tires carry a load rating of 109/107 (8 ply equivalent) and in March and May of 2013 I ran them over 1000 miles of the worst kind of gravel, dirt, boulders, bedrock, & cowtrail without a hitch. We even had to 'rescue' a colleague who's 4WD pickup flattened two tires trying to follow us.

The 215/65/16 size is only 0.4" taller overall than OEM, so performance is unchanged. Fuel efficiency is better - when I travel across Montana with their non-ethanol fuel I get a true 25mpg if I keep my cruise control at 65mph.

Yes, these tires wear somewhat faster in hot weather because a portion of the rubber across the tread is softer for their terrific grip on ice; but, I need the 8-ply's flat protection year-round, so I've settled for the tradeoff of being able to run one set of tires & wheels year-round.
