Anyone have any advice on fitting snow tyres or any information about using them on a Granvia.
Thanks

On my previous Granvia 4WD I had Hancook All season tyres fitted and had no problem in the snow. I bought them from Germany and had them fitted in the UK.

That's top info . Thank you. It would be good to have feedback from anyone using snow tyres or all year round tyres on a two wheel drive. Much appreciated. :D

I run General Grabber AT 225 70 R15 on my 4wd 97 Granvia, so far they have never seen any serious snow as they have only been fitted 18 months. they have a bit more tyre noise on motorway driving but are nice and stable. they replace some cheap Chinese car tyres that the previous owner had fitted which used to fold up in roundabouts......Remember to fit extra load rated tyres or van tyres as a Granvia is basically a permanantly half loaded van.

We mounted good year snow tires size 225x75x15, which are a little over sized, but give a more solid ride.
It reduces rpm by a few hundred for same speed, and the van in deep snow handles excellent.
