What studless snow tire and wheel size do you recommend for a 1992 EuroVan CV Westfalia? My factory size is 205/65 R15 98S reinforced.

I’ve run Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 on other vehicles and loved them. Not sure if they make the appropriate size & load rating for my needs, but will check.

Nokian still makes a NOKIAN NORDMAN 7 - 205/65R15 LR99 tire.
I'd run those. though I prefer a 205 70 15 for the added sidewall height in winter driving.

I ran a set of Goodyear Winter Command Ultras last year on our EVC and they were amazing. Seems that any studless tire from a major tire maker should work fine. From test they all accelerate and stop pretty close to one another.
