The Telegraph’s excellent motoring expert Honest John has been reinforcing his views on fitting winter tyres in his column today.
With much of the UK being carpeted under a blanket of snow during the last few weeks, the winter tyres has been a hot topic in the motoring world.
MS from Banchory told the columnist: “I’d like to reinforce your oft-repeated views about the use of winter tyres. We live in semi-rural Aberdeenshire and endure fairly harsh winters. My wife drives a BMW 325M diesel automatic and we fit winter wheels and tyres from November to March. The results have been excellent.”
Honest John replied: “Many thanks for your support. The 175/65R14 Michelin Alpin A4s on my Fiat 500 provide more comfort and grip then the 185/55 R15 Energy Savers fitted in summer. I always hope I won’t need them, though – I’ve spent too much of my life in Northumberland snow and hate it.”
