Had a fair bit of Snow up in aberdeen this week so first time i've used the tyres in anything but wet and they have been brilliant. Im running Continental Winter contact TS830P all round on oem 18" MV3's. Some unfortunate fellow crashed this morning causing 5-8mile tail backs. this persuaded me to try the back roads as a wee test. Completely snow covered up a notoriously steep hill with T junction at the top and I conquered it with ease! Not even a hit of slip. I took some satisfaction (rightly or wrongly) passing an Audi stuck in a ditch,(after stopping and asking if they were ok of course!) Of course, they were on summer tyres so i am now convinced that winter tyres do make a hell of a difference!
