Took mine out yesterday, not too bad on the road except for one local road that everyone was having trouble negotiating anyway

Well said.No snow up here at present this time around.Looking at news it's no different around England and Wales than what we had here in the North East 3 weeks ago.

Driving in snow is easy finding people that know how to drive in the snow is the hard part mind you i did have a chuckle yesterday when i saw a fararri out of fuel on the hard shoulder that will teach him to own a car that does more gallons to the miles than miles to the gallon.

Went to London and back today. The M1 was horrendous around Milton Keynes on the way there, 20mph and thick slush/snow everywhere, but was fine on the way back, just a few fog patches. Car handled everything fine :)

The **** ESP/TC hinders snow driving if you ask me!!

I can turn off the ESP, but cannot see how to turn off the traction control? **** thing keeps kicking in, stopping the car from getting a grip and stranding me most days!!

Unbeliveably, we have had snow EVERY day for almost 3 weeks now. Im sick to death of it.

I have to say that I am well impressed with my winter tyres, only problem; I now want to push them a bit to see just how good they are, so if anyone sees a red acenta in the ditch its probably me.

I had read somewhere that in tests comparing tyres, winter tyres weren't as much benefit as the manufacturers would have you think!

Don't wanna wound your feelings, guys
But it's really funny to read about your heroic struggle with the snow.
I guess next years you will have to consider our experience. Right here in Moscow we put on winter tyres at the beginning of November...
If everyone do this, the snow is not a great problem.
However I undestand that all of this is a kind of nightmare adventure for you.

strange thing to say, never read anything saying that, all i can say is with the winter tyres fitted i've not had a problem in deep snow, ice or deep slush, no spin no skidding nothing, winter tyres are the way to go if you can afford it go for it, you'll not regret it....

Hi,What sort of price did you pay for winter tyres Guru? Do you just get the garage to swop from the standard tyre to the winter onesand take the standard tyres home until Spring?
