Yeah, I'd never remove the roof rails. It's part and parcel of the Touring DNA!

I had some studless Blizzaks that were super great in the snow and cold, but were more than a little noisy on the highway.

I had some Yokohama Ice Guards that were good, as well as some Hankooks. Trying to find some reviews of the Goodyear Eagle Ultra Grips...
