Michelin Crossclimate. 225/70R15.

New tyres fitted Jeff. Van looks a bit taller, but that could be my imagination. On the old 215/70R15’s the speedo read about 10% fast . That’s 27 at 30 on the Speedo, 63 @ 70. Like you, I use the crap nav, gps as a speedometer.
Time will tell what difference the new boots make.
They may not be “bad ass”, like John n Mandy’s. But I bet they could creep up and bite yer bum😬

Would be good to know how they perform if you happen to get into the white and slippery stuff.

Not had the Cross-Climates on my Motorhome long enough to know what they are like in proper low temps, but I can say that when I had them on my Car, they outperformed both the standard Summer Tyres and my alternate Winter Tyre set.
Just excellent.

And I can remember someone else being snowed in for a week. Without water? Trying to avoid collecting yellow snow. Happy daze (y) Something we'll have to do again.
I was poring water away by the time I could get out, I went a bit overboard melting snow and bottling the water ha ha
