There's a deal on the Adventures now but Consumer reviews aren't so great per Tire Rack:I’m a huge Goodyear guy, having had great luck on many vehicles, including my previous van (2 sets), multiple pickup trucks at work, and my current Nissan Rouge commuter.
In fact, my YJ may get a set of Adventurer AT’s, and I’ll have to buy 5 for it!
I’m kind of a rare duck with that opinion, however.....

They were my go to for my F150 and others in my fleet. Traction was incredible on any surface, and 65k miles was normal for wear.
I like the Pirelli 4 Season tire but have never bought one. Price wasn't right.Hi Les here. I have always run Michelin from Costco or Goodyear with good results. My used van came with Nitto winter tires, a division of Toyo. They gave great traction but were very poor as the belts seperated early on and caused front end issues. Not recommended in my opinion. I am now doing a test on Pirelli 4 season tires from Costco. It is claimed they work in true winter and summer driving conditions. We'll see when winter shows up with a foot of snow. Google them and see what you think. I'm still a big fan of summer only and winter only tires. But I'm from northern Canada and unless you live in Alaska this is the true test of what a tire can do.
"Even in light snow" pretty well qualifies it as not much snow traction. Most of the benefits would be for sideways traction (open center grooves) but forward traction, not so much.P4 Four Seasons Plus tires combine ride comfort, low noise and reduced rolling resistance with long life and four-season traction on dry, wet and wintry roads, even in light snow.
The Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus features an optimized casing profile with an internal structure that includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon to combine long wear, ride quality and durability. Polyester cord body plies combine strength with ride comfort.
Maybe that's why worn tires have better dry pavement braking than newer tires, but not so much in the wet..I agree. I run Michelin Ice on my wifes car. They work well on packed snow. Thats what they are designed for. Best for commuter driving in city traffic where most people operate. It has to do with contact patch. But when they get into some deep snow not so great. Pirelli claims that this tire is a true 4 season tire. If you live in the country a spaced tread block is much better for chewing through the snow but has limitations on wet and slippery surfaces. Think motocross bike tires. Great for mud and dirt but horrible for wet street use. Pleas don't ask me how I know this.
One question you should consider is how long are you planning on keeping your van and how many miles will you put on the new tires. If you are going to put only 30-40k miles on, then go cheap. If you are going a lot longer, get a good set. One good set is cheaper than 2 cheap sets.I need to get my winter tires off, it's a bit overdue. However, I don't have summer tires yet. I've looked around a bit and just not sure what to buy. Generally looking at General Altimax R43, is there a better tire?
I recommend Nokian entyre 2.0. Nokian eNTYRE 2.0. Low price but high quality and made out of silica rubber blend so it has good traction in all temperatures.I need to get my winter tires off, it's a bit overdue.
