As a new owner of a GV80 (previously 2017 G90), living in BC Canada, I followed through with my usual practice of purchasing a set of Winter Wheels/Winter Tires for a Prestige Model GV80 (see pics).
Details: 20" Braelin (sold as Genesis Wheels) with Pirelli Scorpion tires
1381

Moving from my G90 to the GV80 is a whole new experience, never having owned an SUV before.
The GV80 has excellent driving dynamics and could be describes as a 'sporty Comfort SUV' -- of course, a totally different experience from the 'cushy but lustily performing G90'.
More about my GV80 ownership experience since early December of 2020 at a later posting.

Welcome to the forum @WWB in BC!

Did you have a chance to test them out in the snow lately? If so, I would appreciate your take on how they perform. Along with how it works in conjunction with the safety driving tech Genesis included.

Makes sense to ask about the performance of the tires (Pirelli Scorpions).
Sorry to say (or is this year's mild winter a blessing), in the Vancouver Metro area (excluding the mountains for skiing) we have had no snow. December/January temperatures have ranged from -2 (at night) to 8, 9 degrees Celsius, resulting in lots of rain but none of the more typical snow dumps we would get in January to February.
Consequently, I cannot provide personal experience comments on snow and ice performance -- such reviews can be found at reputable Tire Review sites (including Consumer Reports).
I have appreciated the low tire noise of these Pirellis when driving at speed.

Glad to know road noise has been minimal on those Pirelli winter tires. Did you fill up on regular air or nitrogen? I know in winter nitrogen can be great as it won't fluctuate as much, if at all.

Congratulations on getting your GV80 @WWB in BC! Is the color Uyuni White? What convinced you to get the GV80 as your first SUV?
