An excellent question, I thought van or estate of some type...Did Stu Pickles not drive a Citroen DS?
I can't comment on them, but I get around just fine on M+S tires in the snow, ice and cold. I take my time and drive with caution. As always, I would prefer to have snow tires, but it's so rare for us to actually get a decent amount of snow for an extended period, they would just dry rot in the shop. Yes, I know that they would help on cold days (below 45f/~8c), but again, we don't get that many days below that, even in winter.
If you can't afford an actual set of snow tires, maybe you shouldn't be driving? Fucks sake.
But it’s a 4x4 so therefore it doesnt need winter tyres. Atleast thats what the drivers usually think. A couple of years ago I passed a 4x4 Toyota Hilux that was struggling to get up a tiny incline with my fwd Astra.... people are dumb
Also, ‘stopping’ is just not a consideration, people who dislike winter tyres only go on about ‘well I’ll just drive slower in the corners’....
