    oh how i love snow

    Anyone else having real trouble with the snow

    i live on a bit of a hill with a corner at the bottom and even going two mile an hour i managed to slide across the road and hit the curb poor alloy.

    Anyone else having big trouble with larger tyres

    In every other country that gets snow, drivers fit winter wheels with snow tyres. The UK don't. Summer tyres don't work on snow. Simple.
