    FAO Any German freinds.

    I am going to Titesse in the Black forrest for a week during christmas. Trouble is the hotel where we are going to is in the small village of saig. With us going around the xmas time the chances are that there will be some snow on the roads. some people have sugested I need winter tyres for the trip, whilst others say that ill be fine with what ive got. I dont want to have to buy a set of winter tyres, becouse they might never be used again.

    Do I need to buy a set of snow chains just in case?

    Will they scratch and damage my 17" alloys?

    How fast can i go on the autobahn?

    i know the area fairly well

    Do I need to buy a set of snow chains just in case? yes

    Will they scratch and damage my 17" alloys? yes

    How fast can i go on the autobahn? fast as you like, unless it says otherwise


    last time i was in the black forest in winter, it was -20 and 2meter deep snow. most people run winter tyres on steelies though the winter months. winter tyres will wear quickly if you go over 50/60mph

    make sure you have a snow shovel as well, also something to keep warm in, incase it get stuck somewhere for a while.

    it maybe fine and mild, but they do get very harsh winters every now and then. so it's worth being prepaired

    like nikon said, lose the alloys, they will probably just get ****ed anyway, if not by chains, by skidding on ice into a nice curb.

    don't want to worry you, it could be really nice weather, but it's the kind of place were it can get pretty icy, and you will be happy to have steelies/winter tyres and chains.

    have a fun trip, it's beautiful around there
