Honest John, the Daily Telegraph’s excellent motoring agony aunt, has had his message about the virtues of fitting winter tyres applauded by a motoring commuter all the way over in Sweden.
The Saturday motoring supplement, which features Honest John’s advice column, ran this letter from JH in Sweden: “Your advice on winter tyres is 100 per cent correct. I use a front-wheel-drive VW Passat daily for a 150km (90 mile) commute on every imaginable tyre of surface. Winter rubber is a money saver. My normal tyres wear at half their usual rate and my alloys don’t get corroded by salt (the winter tyres are on steel rims). Winter tyres are a no-brainer.”
To which Honest John replied: “Extremely good stuff and the message I have been trying to put across for more than two years.”
