Hello all.
Just researching and wondering if anyone has already considered getting a spare set of wheels with winter or AT tyres fited for when the weather is expected to be grimmer?

If so, any thoughts on what tyres to go for?

I used Runway Enduro on my toyota surf for four years. Decent tyres at a reasonable price. Deep tread pattern,very good in the snow when we had it.

Personally, I'd just stick with winter tyres all year round (unless you're planning on going off-road). I've got some fitted to my Mondeo ST220, and they cope admirably with 220bhp going through the front wheels. They'd cope with the 110bhp of the Duster rather easily I think!

I put General Grabber AT2s on my Jimny, they were an excellent tyre but because of the aggressive tread it knocked about 8mpg off
