Many thanks to all for the input.... spent the day 'shopping' via phone, and cannot beat the Tire Rack deals anywhere, at least locally here in Les Bois....

Not sure if you would want a 20" snow tire. It is generally adviseable to get an 18", due to taller sidewall (better deflection in pothole situations) and a smaller patch width (cuts thru snow a bit better).

i dont think they do a 20".....but my 255/50 R19 XL also have a 'N' rating.In fact it the ONLY offroad tyre recommended by porsche for 19" wheels.

A correction to Wingless's info posted above regarding Nitto tires. I have Nitto TerraGrapplers in the 255/55 R18 size for my 18" wheels. They are not rated to Cayenne top speeds so I stay under 130 mph .

As Wingless says they are not true winter tires but rated by the manfacturer as mud and snow. This dual use is good for me because I occasionally go off road in the desert as well as skiing in the Sierra Nevada. I have driven them in a heavy Sierra blizzard and they are very capable in snow most icing conditions. During that weekend I slipped once on sheet ice, and this is where true winter tires *might* have shown their superiority.
