Hi folks anyone else use anything like this.

2254018VCOOPR92XL:WEATHERMASTERSNOW[4] COOPER TYRES / WINTER SNOW CAR / COOPER WEATHERMASTER SNOW - 225/40R18 92V XL TL

It's a snow tyre for the ST. Camskill tell me it's the difference between driving and slipping

would appreciate feedback. I have not been able to get the ST out since before Santa came

I don't know the tyres - but wouldn't pay £400 for a set of snow tyres for the ST, not for the next few weeks max! Plus, I doubt they would make that much difference.
4 space saver wheels would do the job - or for £15 a day you could hire a Ford fiesta/KA etc

I would have thought that if you are going to get snow tyres they ought to be much narrower than the standard 225 width otherwise they will not be able to bite down through the snow. This would mean getting wheels and tyres though, although you would not need alloys - steel wheels would be OK. You will need to do some homework to ensure that you get the correct aspect ratio to keep the rolling radius the same to keep the speedo accurate.

Fitting studs will transform their performance but you have to limit your speed and cornering speed when there is no snow.

Tyres fitted excellent job. The difference is awsome. Still got 8" of snow on the drive. Had at least 6 inch fall last night. Drove straight through it.

Hmmmm bet it sounds like a Landrover on dry roads though
