I agree, and like anything, set up a decent tool to its best performance, is hard to beat.

I see some of the crofters up here in their AWD cars and utility vehicles on some pretty decent winter tyre sets. But the school run mums are typically on AWD with at best 'All season' tyres, many on summer tyres in the same conditions. It is a bit scary to see them driving their kids around in the same manner and speeds as the guys with the proper kit on their vehicles.

As long as we know the limitations.... but I'm sure there are many who just assume 4x4 means safe mobility.
