If you're a sensible driver, can read road conditions, anticipate well, these winter tyres will give many many safe miles of driving in all weathers. I'm a taxi driver covering over 1,000 miles week, and believe me winter tyres are the best investment any road user could make. Whilst other drivers are often idiots, too fast, too close, wrong gear on snowy roads etc, these tyres will get anyone home, safely, up hill, down hill, snow, sleet, ice, the lot. - for the record, winter tyres work and aid safety in low temperatures, they are NOT just for snow covered roads. They grip, clamp, glue and bond themselves to the road, believe me, like I said I drive 50k year in all weathers. These budget tyres are worth the money, just be steady and keep in a low gear!
