I bought the Viking Transtech (not Transtech II) tyres for my Transporter as they were cheap and they are generally pretty good for the money. Not noisy on the road, good grip, feedback & durability however, grip in the wet is less than I was expecting and they're absolutely useless for snow and mud. I use my van at weekends to transport my motorbikes around so we're generally in a field of at the bottom of a track somewhere in the countryside. Even relatively minor off road / mixed gravel and mud situations see you grind to a halt when other VW Transporters are ploughing on regardless. If you do any minor off road work I'd recommend you look at another tyre choice. That said, if I was just doing road work they would be great.
