Just put mine on....... so please UK drivers get some so that when you get 4 inches of snow the whole of the UK wont come to a stand still :eek: ..... we carry on driving regardless with 1 m of snow and laugh till we cry every year at the UK's drivers inability to cope in a flurry .... and then in turn the locals take the michael out of me because of it. :(

Its law over here ! if its slippery due to frost or minus temp and you have a accident your in the Shi+ and correct as well As you know I live in the Black forest and we have some real hairy areas to get round and it only needs some Prat who thinks he dont need winter tires to mess up a perfect running road ! also on some passes you will hear on the radio (mainly Bavaria or the Feldberg area in the Black Forest ) that Snow chains are needed Mainly directed at HGV vehicles ..all the same though I take off my hat to any Brit who Buys his or her winter Tires ! you are doing something good for your car and for other road users :)

as usual

Just my thoughts

Got my winter tyres put on on Monday so all ready for the big snowfall that's supposed to hit Yorkshire next week. The steel wheels don't like as nice as my alloys though!!

Yeah the German response to snow and bad weather is legendary' the Wehrmacht really showed the red army in 1942 at Stalingrad how to deal with it.,
