Just been thinking about next year's skiing. Well, why not, there's no Summer happening in the UK this year... I was considering driving to the Alps from the UK and spending a couple of days in several different resorts over a couple of weeks, instead of a week or two in one place. Almost certainly France. The point is, I don't think you can put chains on 18" wheels due to clearance, can you? I won't be getting winter tyres as that's too much to shell out for what may be a once-only trip. I could risk it with just the 4wd I suppose, but I've seen some horrendous problems with people struggling after a big overnight dump and I'm not sure if just the 4wd is really enough on its own. Anyone got any experience of the Quattro on snow with standard tyres? Any recommendations for chains, or if that is even possible?
