+1.

With only 2 Nokian on the rear wheels, it's like night and day.
With Summer tires I could get stuck on a parking spot , now I can get going from a full-stop on the ice-covered steep incline to my house, DTC-on the X1 Sdrive barely indicates any wheel spin.

Just AMAZIN' !!!

Living in the northern Europe i have often bought Nokian winter tyres but on my X1 car dealer included the Yokohama iceguard Ig30 and I'm impressed with the grip!!

Seriously, stunned to say the least. Oh and I also live up a very steep hill.

I think the only thing that would stop my X1 in the snow is if its too deep and you start ploughing.

PS: Don't have a pic with the X1 in it but these were the conditions at the house yesterday !

Thanks for the pic Mario. This is exactly the type of snowfall that I was interested in seeing and how the X1 performed in it.
