I must admit I am noticing the wheel scrabble a lot in this. It seems like in the snow or ice it will be a useless motor.

I have just discussed this with my Suzuki franchise and they say it has been mentioned by others in the past. He asked if it happened on full lock. It does seem to happen mostly when pulling out of a side street so maybe steering has something to to with it.

He went on to say it is the way the outer tyre is leaning out and working with the inner tyre though I wasn't taking much of it in. He also told me that the narrow tyres make it worse.

I am now even more convinced to go to a 185 65 16 size.

The fact hat it happens on full lock suggests to me the the Ackermann geometry isn't quite right.

It actually happens when I hoof it from standing straight ahead or whatever. The bloke told me it was inherent (my word) in the Ignis.

I suspect that two different phenomena are being discussed. Crabbing is basically caused by a twist in the tyre tread releasing and only happens on lock - usually extreme lock. Tyres scrambling in the straight ahead position is basically loss of grip. The crabbing on the Ignis is probably due to a combination of a very small turning circle coupled with the stiff wall of the Ecopia tyres. The situation deteriorates in cold conditions as the tyre sidewall stiffens further. Straight line scrambling may well be improved with a wider tyre - but this may make crabbing worse!

OK...so after 3 weeks so, I can report that the NK AW6's have bedded in, and I'm pleased with them. The grip is waaaay better than the OE bridges. in the wet I have a lot more confidence. Noise when new HAS settled down. Massively better than the OE rubber

Oh for sure it is loss of grip; like trying to race off on gravel.

So my Celerio I owned and the Swift I was loaned both had awful road noise. The Ignis is way quieter than either of those. The Celerio noise was almost unbearable.

I found the ecopias to be a really noisy tyre on my Celerio and a change made a massive difference. However, I have Bridgestone B250 fitted to my Ignis and according to my tyre man they are right at the low end of the Db rating (68Db).
This is bad news because there is good room for improvement noisewise and it means I need to do something else to cure it - sound deadening throughout.

Also the B250s are rated B for wet so I can't do too much better. Slightest bit of water on the road and wheelspin is a problem. At around 55 to 115 quid a corner I cannot justify the cost of swapping to A rated. Not having allgrip means for me this motor will be a no no in the snow, slush and ice.
