    Facelift Winter tires - Time to take responsibility?

    Wind up merchant? What, because I don’t see the need for winter tyres in a typical mild and damp U.K. winter? It’s frankly hilarious that you ‘winter tyre’ fanboys (or girls) get so over excited about those of us who choose not to use them, does it somehow offend you? Comedy gold:tearsofjoy:

    Drive according to the conditions. Not rocket science.

    He had a good point though.

    Facelift Winter tires - Time to take responsibility?

    The unexpected can and does happen on warm dry days with summer tyres fitted, it’s irrelevant what tyres you have or what the conditions are. Driving according to the conditions doesn’t just mean in the winter, it’s year round. I am a qualified EFAD driver and we are taught to expect...

    I don’t like Ed Sheehan either mate, good taste:rockwoot: Just thought, you might not get this as you’ve ‘ignored’ me. Clown:yahoo:

    I’m bored now, and I totally understand. Happy motoring:hi:

    Like I said, it was a tongue in cheek post designed to get one or two amusing reactions. It failed miserably as people are still offended that I don’t use them. Sigh.

    Erm....because that is what forums are designed for, to offer different opinions and perspectives. Oh hang on, maybe AudiSport is different, are we all meant to share the same views? Perhaps that’s where I’ve been going wrong then:blush:

    Not doing any harm at all mate, I’ve never once said it does. And I didn’t bump it to wind anyone up, it was a tongue in cheek comment that’s all. In my naevity I was expecting one or two amusing replies but no, just more people getting all excited and wound up Ask yourself, why would my...

    You are correct in that I am in the Fire Service, but you are way out when you say that I post just to provoke a reaction. Forums aren’t meant for people that agree on everything otherwise what would be the point? When I first made a post about my decision not to use winter tyres I was met...

    Don’t worry about me cupcake, I just drive according to the conditions. Luckily for me I live in the U.K., where generally the winters are mild and wet, with maybe the odd flurry here and there. I do agree with about one thing, winter tyres are definitely needed.....if you lived somewhere that...

    Hahaha I’m neither bored or a wind up merchant, calm yourself cupcake. If me giving my opinions on winter wheels winds you up then that’s your problem mate, not mine. Hmmm, last years ‘beast from the east’ was pretty horrendous I’ll admit, but me and my A3 survived unscathed:footy:

    No mate, I’m living proof that in most parts of this country where at worst we might get a few inches of snow you don’t necessarily NEED winter tyres. IF we had proper winters like some countries then winter tyres and/or snow chains are essential. I’m not offended that you choose to use...

    Oh? On the odd occasion that we’ve had any decent snow I’ve often driven up and down steep hills. Drive according to the conditions, nothing scientific.

    Firstly I can’t predict the weather (who can?) and secondly I’ve never once said I was against it, I just don’t think it’s worth the effort that’s all. No need to get all offended.

    Me too, but I just drove according to the conditions, zero accidents.

    Difference is you don’t have to change them twice a year to compensate for what weather you MIGHT get. Lol.
