I have to agree with this.

I've also been running with Winter tyres for the last three seasons. 17" Run flat Blizzaks from sometime in November to sometime the following March and I've never been stuck. Remember, it's not just in snow but in temperatures below 7 degrees when they are beneficial, as they have a different rubber compound.

Just been out today for a wee drive to the Ardennes, round the small roads near Spa and Francorchamps. Temps of -10 and snow on the side roads, never once were we worried.

Go on, get some Winter tyres and enjoy your car all year round.
