Tire Question From Sr. Citizen

Hello,
Thanks again for previous help. Very nice of you all.
Sr. Citizen now, so please bear with me a bit.
Have to get new tires for my 2009 Buick LaCrosse (4 door sedan)
Live outside of Boston. "Fair" amount of snow in the winter.
I leave my tires on all year round, even though I agree it's not the
smartest thing to do; but just too much of a hassle to change it these days.
So, I would like to put on Nokian WR G3 tires.
Have really liked them in the past.
Sticker on the car door frame says: 225/60 R16
Nothing else.
**Present tires are Michelin, and embossed on the tire is:
225/60 R16 98H
I have no idea what the 98 H means ?
**The closest that Nokian now offers for their WR G3 is:
225/60 R16 102 V XL
Again, I have no idea what the 102 V XL means ?
What do all these symbols mean, please ?
H
V
XL
and the 102
Think the Nokian's with the 102 V XL will be good for my 2009 Buick ?
Any caveats re handling, snow capability etc. ?
Thanks,
Bob

I don't know either, but it seems like a subset of what the door frame says to use, so I'm sure it's fine.
Except for XL. I think that means Extra Large. Have you gained weight? JK, just kidding.
