I got lucky and picked up a set recently from someone who split from their spouse and sold me the OEM 18" rims and dunlop graspic ds-2 snow tires with sensors. These tires would not be the best choice, but the price was right ($400). My preferred snow tire are nokian. I have never been disappointed with the hakkapelitta. They are expensive, but will last longer than you will keep your current SAV. Although if you want performance, you will find them loud and a little "mushy" during mild weather. But for real snow tires, these are a good set up. I have no experience with the dunlop set yet, since I haven't mounted them. However, I don't think they'll be great since they are run-flats, which are typically much harder than a snow tire should be. Hope this helps. I plan to post after I get these mounted next week and wait for a real snow storm to give them a try.

Here's my current set up:
