I love driving in the snow, especially when there's no one else around to 'up the risks'; and my winter hobby sees me on top of some of the highest mountain peaks in England & Scotland, which invariably requires some driving in the snow. We've owned a few 4x4s over the years, including a couple of VW Touaregs (V10 & V6) for towing our caravans and because they were fitted with road tyres, they were only average (for 4x4s) in the snow, as there is only so much 'electrickery' systems can do. I did manage to get to a VW Unlimited day, which consisted of both track and off road; and they were pretty awesome offroad with the correct tyres fitted. I drive some pretty high powered cars at work, with fat low profiles and they are an absolute pain at times in the snow and I get better traction out of the wife's Aygo with its skinny little tyres and low power engine. I've only had the Honda Tourer (Auto) since the summer, so what am I in for when the white stuff arrives, and if winter is prolonged, will it be worth getting a set of "M&S" tyres fitted for a few months ? Blizz.
