the WR/NRW is snow rated like a "real" winter tire,

the SP5000s are not, they are just all season, M & S rated tires.(for those who aren't familiar, M & S means nothing except that the contact patch is 25% treadless, the nomenclature is a left over from the 50s and 60s when people still drove around with non radial tires.)

have had one season with NRW on my 98 GT, very nice though I think the snow/ice traction is not quite up to the Artic Alpins I had before.
