An increasing number of British skiers and snow boarders are opting for holidays to European ski resorts to enjoy good snow conditions. However, driving to ski resorts in many European countries brings with it driving issues particularly in relation to tyres.
It is common for many European motorists to have two sets of tyres. At this time of the year, winter tyres are fitted to deal with the very cold weather, ice and snow. According to Micheldever Tyre Services/Protyre this is not common practice in the UK, although there has been an increase in the sale of winter or cold weather tyres, most cars in the UK are fitted with summer tyres all the year round.
