Well I've never used chains on my Voyager however, performance on summer tires in the snow was dreadful. I've had both Continental's and Michelin's up front and on both occasions it was beaten by even the slightest amount of snow or even heavy frost. Therefore, for where I live and drive I wouldn't entertain not having snow tires during the winter months.
Now, overall with snow tires it performs okay in the snow, although not the best 2 wheel drive vehicle I've ever had but its usable. However, something to note, with summer tires at the rear I found that on compacted snow the ABS often kicked in furthermore, the rear is prone to breaking loose although not alarmingly so, it can become tiring if you're driving for any length of time, therefore I went with a cheep snow tire on the rears.
