Winter tyres - why you should get some

Recommended Posts

Lots of debate this time of year whether winter tyres or not.  

On 29th Jan 2019 it dumped with snow over the snake pass in the Peaks with very expensive 4x4's on their standard summer tyres failing to get over the top and even making the point of winding down their window to tell me that I had no chance on making it as they had tried twice & failed. 

I had lots of surprised faces when I passed them all and I was the only one over the top at 3pm on Tuesday afternoon - Winter tyres are the way forward if you live in an area that gets is bad!

Bought Michelin Cross Climate tyres for our Jazz March 2018.

 

Great in current snow.

Highly recommended. On all year so cheaper than winter and summer tyres.

Totally agree. I run Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen-2 on my Aygo, and the difference is like night and day between summer and all season tyres. The previous Continental ECO's were utter rubbish on the slippy side roads. The Goodyear's are very good on slushy, wet, snowy and icy surfaces. There's a slight compromise in the summer, but as I don't hoon around like my butt is on fire, they give me confidence all year round.
