This is my third instalment of my winter tyre blog and perhaps the most crucial so far. Since my last update my colleagues and I visited our Head office in Stirling for our Christmas party. The morning after the event I was shocked to see an inch of snow through my hotel window and a 300 mile journey home ahead of me.
Driving a BMW in the snow last year was almost embarrassing. An incline of any description rendered the vehicle almost useless, if not dangerous, when the standard tyres were fitted. Naturally I was apprehensive, the untreated, unused hotel car park would have previously been enough to stop my BMW in its tracks and leave me with no choice but to have an extended breakfast.
