I don't understand why people in the UK, and more so Scotland, don't use winter tyres, there seems to be a common misconception that they are for snow... couldn't be further from the truth, they are more designed for cold weather, below -7°c iirc.

Softer rubber meaning better grip in colder climates.

I get way better traction from all season tyres than I do from straight summers

Switch done. And with my usual impeccable timing, when the temps went back up to summer level :lol:
