Hi Guys

I need good advise based on personal (!!!) driving feelings. What winter tyres do you normally buy -- I mean brand and grade.

Whether is is normal in the UK to install tyre studs? As to our winter -- it has become Continental and sometimes the themp degrease up to (minus 16 C) + rime. I am bout to call to th etrader regarding to Nokian Hakkapeliitta SUV 5 (225/65/17).

May be it is not good choice from me - that is why all comments are highly invited.

Cheers/Igor

I used to run my Mazda 6 4WD on Michelin Pilot Alpins during winter in Scotland, and I thought they were fantastic. I once had a 150 mile drive from Aberdeen in the snow and I would not have made it home without them.

They are a softer rubber compound for running in temperatures lower than 7'C - the only downside is that their softness means they can be prone to accidental gouging of the side wall.

But if I could find a fit for my T180 - which would probably mean buying dedicated alloys - then I would go for them again.

I think that most people in the UK don't buy winter tyres and certainly not stud tyres (maybe illegal in UK) . At worst we get about 3 days of snow and the country grinds to a halt on those days.

we have a specific winter with several snowy days + after warm up + frost again = ice on the roads. the problem is that the landscape of my region is hilly and the studs are the best solution to be assured from ocasual car sliding issues. the most of drivers are focused on both good brand and study tyres. Thank you
