    Handling wise? I guess it would be the same as every front wheel drive car... depends on how you drive it surely? Drive in a high gear blah blah blah...

    What tyre size does your Vectra have?
    The low profile tyres are very poor performing in snow
    The 17" wheels are a compromise between increased brake size for performance, the disadvantage is the reduction of performance in snow

    For the last two winters I haven't even bothered sometimes with the Vectra in the snow
