I am in the West Midlands and my Vitara allgrip is fitted with the standard tyres. We had about 2 foot of fresh snow from over night last Saturday into Sunday night. When I drove out of my street Monday morning I had no problems, even though there was ice everywhere too. I even went on route to pick up colleagues who couldn't get out of their own streets, they were very impressed on this 4 wheel drive vehicle. There were loads of very expensive vehicles abandoned on the way.
It was the first time in the snow for my Allgrip and I was seriously impressed. santa

Same here, gripped very well in snow/mud setting, even a steep climb out an estate with compact snow and ice on car was very sure footed. My GV was great but it did have more grippier tyres, was expecting it a bit of slip sliding with the factory tyres but performed very well indeed.

What tyres do you have fitted ?

I have a spare set of 16" Alloys that i have been trying to sell, however am now considering (again) buying a set of TPMS sensors and Winter rubber for them.

I have put winter tyres on my Missus' little Fiat 500 this year and it felt totally secure on the 40 mile ( return) commute to work and back over the last few days, a mixture of A Roads, Dual Carriage and twisty country lanes, through Rain, snow, hail, low temps, mud etc. She has been using my Vit all week so i never got to have a play...

i got some Nokian WR D3 215/60 R16. really good in the snow. i will try to upload another video
