Most everything automotive is a "trade-off" between absolute performance, wear rate, durability and ride. ie: solid engine mounts on an engine would last far longer and allow more "instant" horsepower to reach the driveline but would shake all the teeth out of your head. Same with tires. If you are looking for a tire that is quiet, rides well and lasts a long time, but still gives excellent grip in snow, the only one that crosses my mind is a tire made by NOKIA. What you are looking for is a tire with semi-agressive tread pattern, good cord count (more plies are better, but don't go overboard or they will ride very hard) Wear is controlled by the compound mix. There again, too hard of a compound rides harder and sometimes can result in sidewall cracking from flex. There are likely other tires out there which are similar or better than the nokias, but it will take some research to determine which is best for you. Additionally, it may take a bit of experimentation...some tires just seem to work better on certain vehicles than others (has a lot to do with actual weight distribution and suspension design of each individual car.)
Don't just buy the most expensive tire...I've seen many sub-brands outperform pirellis in different applications!
I'm not "the last word" on this, but if you ask ten people you are likely to get as many different answers! I have done tons of research though!!!
As for the hub nut tool, why not bring the incorrect one back to the dealer and tell them they got you the wrong one???
Good luck in your search!!

it sounds like your starter motor is faulty. first make sure the battery is fully charged, then place a screwdriver between the contacts of the solenoid on the starter motor, if it again just clicks, then you need to repair or replace the starter motor.
hope this helps

No need for a diagram, to drain the oil, there's a drain plug on the bottom of the transfer box, under the handbrake drum. To fill, the fill plug is about in line with the centre of the handbrake drum and to the left. I think both plugs are 1/2" square. Fill to overflow with Texaco Multi-Gear 75W/90R. Takes about 2L or so.
