It's simple logic that winter tyres are worse than summer tyres all the time, unless it's snowed. And it never snows any more. To each their own, of course, but living on an island in the gulf stream means we just don't get cold enough for long enough to warrant them IMO

Watch me eat my words now as we descend into an ice age
OR unless they are WINTER SPORTS tyres these peform very well in conditions below 14 degC and very good in wet conditions,both of which are conditions now between November /March times. IMO of course.
These tyres are "V" speed rated thats 149MPH.
Live for now, life is too short.
