Did you never see the rally cars in the snow using thin tyres.
My 83 Citroen GSA had 145x15 tyres and handled and gripped brilliantly.
I had an 84 320i BMW which had no grip at all on wide tyres, indeed my girlfriend (now wife) used to be able to leave me for dead in her 957cc Fiesta on narrow tyres as soon as it started to rain at all.
This wide tyre thing is nonsense.
Apologies for the rant.
