    We have same van....went for the michelins though can see above there are other options...these seem to outdo others on slippery surfaces but have heard the continentals are quieter on the road. As mentioned it's about the usage and sidewall issues (personally our van never stationary for than a week anyway...not necessarily touring just run till engine fully hot as any vehicle stationary for long is not good) so tyres regularly exercised which I think is good for them. The tyres that came off were 7 years old OMG !! but looked good....the van had just been a "toy" till we bought it !! Our mechanic fitted the 500 michelins then cheerfully said "..yer can throw them away in three years n all !!" ...EH !! So, possibly better choices above LOL 😂. Maja

    you mention CrossClimates. I ran those on my last car and thought them superb. The hype around them really is true - for me they were better than the regular premium brand tyres I have used and better than the Conti Winter Tyres I have used.
    Definately worth considering if available in your size and load rating - and they are recognised as Winter Tyres as well in those countries that mandate them in Winter time.

    I run crossclimates on my 4x4, very good allrounder, would definatly consider them on the van if they are available in correct size/load index.

    Crossclimate are now included in the Agilis range, must be worth considering.
    Have crossclimate on car, but BFGoodrich AT's on van.

    I have also used Michelin cross climates on my 2WD car - just fitted my second set a month ago. They are brilliant tyres, well worth the extra cost, and unbelievably good in wet or snow conditions. I tend to drive 'enthusiastically' and in the wet they give a good level of confidence.
    I use BF Goodrich All terrains on the 4WD campervan - again, excellent tyres but a bit pricey.

    The load rating is the last number on the sidewall before the speed rating letter.
    You can look all these up easily to ensure compliance but I've seen some tyres rated 109/107S. So are they 109 or 107 load rating? Confusing.

    Both. Used singly, the load rating is 109. In a pair (twin wheels on the same axle) the load rating is 107.
