I know this might sound mad. But if you think the might be snow carry two small carpet rugs and put them under the tyres to get you free if you are stuck

But the item won't be delivered ... as it will be stuck on a lorry somewhere in England or in my local sorting office with eight parcels and my last five days post are stuck, as they have simply stopped doing ANY deliveries.

Last time I saw one of these it was some knob picking it up from the outside lane of the dual carriageway last week when it had fallen off his BMW! Probably came off because there was no snow on the road. Either that or he was just a knob!

Well he WAS driving a BMW - what more proof do you need? :p

Anyway, he probably found that he couldn't tailgate properly with them on.

I've heard that unless you get the correct winter tyres for your car then you won't be covered by your insurance company if you have a prang. I bet these aren't covered at all.

I tell you, it's snow joke! :(

But on a serious note, this country is useless. I would use chains if easy to put on and were at a fair price. Winter tyres are some £100-£200 each (so I am told) plus the cost of a garage to remove your old ones and replace. Plus how do you take 4 tyres home easily? Plus where to store the other tyres??

Winter tyres at the moment have gone stupidly expensive because there's such high demand all of a sudden (I wonder why?!). Ordinarily winter tyres are not really any more expensive than normal summer tyres; case in point, I just bought 4 Continental WinterContact 195/65/R15 tyres for £65 fully fitted. I think that offer's finished now though.

True, not everyone has the space to transport or store 4 tyres. Some tyre places will store your summer tyres and switch them back over in the spring. To avoid having to switch over your tyres every six months, you can get a spare set of steel rims from scrapyards for not a lot and then switch over wheels every six months - surely a lot cheaper and easier than switching tyres. I have my 4 summer tyres sat in my garage at the moment while I hunt around for some steel rims for my car.

Bear in mind that while your summer tyres are in storage you won't be wearing them down, so they'll last longer. Supposedly winter tyres wear better in cold weather than summer tyres, so in the long run the costs aren't really that great - I think it's the up front costs that are putting most people off.

Just a smidge.

Any more sweeping generalisations to follow? How do you feel about black people or students?

No problems with them, just BMW drivers ;)

Bizarrely insurers are charging up to 20% extra in premiums when you tell them you have these fitted

Guess its cos you are telling them you are driving around in the snow & ice so are more at risk than most others who tend to stay off the roads.
