    The SMART person would be looking to purchase winter tyres NOW! cause they will be a bargain compared to waiting till the first snowflakes fall!

    Dunlop SP Winter Sport are the DogsB´s, not cheap but a revelation in traction!

    A cheap winter tyre is the equivelant of a cheap summer tyre!

    I can only give my opinion (and experiences) when offering advice on Winter Tyres, and strangely the differences are almost the equivelant of the various opinions on summer tyres. Its a mine-field!

    You get what you pay for!

    Some good advice from dunk there,

    you get what you pay for with all types of tyres,

    buy the cheapest wheels you can get, and the smallest you can fit on. then spend what you can on good winter tyres

    Last year i bought a set of wheels for £80 they are 16" http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgur...w=1366&bih=639
    they look gash, but at least the car dosent get stuck anywhere

    I have unfortuneately picked one of the more ANAL! countries in the world to live in! with regards to rules and regs (I have had the winter tyre debacle imposed on me since 1981), the ADAC (german AA) are strangely enough the experts! I have tried many different types of tyre and have come to the conclusion that to save a penny costs a pound!
