I used to have a minivan and it drove terrible on snow with Dunlop SP Sport 5000. It is okay on dry pavement but it is terrible on rain and snow.
I was very tired of all the problems I was experiencing with Dunlop's. I've searched online looking for new set of tires and found the Cooper Zeon RS3-A. I saw the review of other people on how it did well on snow and I decided that I've give it a try. The price is good too. The specific tire model and brand is excellent IMO based on experience. I'm not sure how it would do on SUV's. I've driven my FWD minivan(Mazda5) from Maryland to Canada. Along the way, it happened that there's a blizzard in Buffalo, NY. My family is with me and the van have 4 adults and 1 baby and all the things that we needed for 3 days. To my surprise is that my minivan did very well while other cards were stuck. It was scary but my minivan did well.
I also dropped my wife to work in Baltimore after a snow storm and my minivan climb a steep hill and my minivan did well equipped with Cooper Zeon RS3-A tires. My minivan did very well and I was able to survive the high climb.
When it's time for me to change the tires of my 2016 Rav4. It will be equipped with Cooper RS3-A's.
