Re: 4x4 Snow performance - your views

My RWD XF is on Goodyear Vector 4 Season tyres and frankly it is better in the snow than our 4WD Ateca - and I know from past experience that on summer tyres the XF is a nightmare in snow. I didn't even bother with "snow mode" as the ZF auto is very progressive - more so than the Ateca's DSG. All the more annoying that neither Goodyear, Michelin nor Nokian make an all-season tyre in 225/50R18, even though the size is shared with the BMW X1.
