640D Winter Tyres

1 post in this topic

Sorry if this has been done to death, but just wanted to mention the performance last winter of my 640D (2015) in the snow. I have a set of 19" wheels and Pirelli 245 run flat winter tyres which go on the car usually from Oct to March. I live quite high in the pennines so it can get a bit snowy. Last winter there were 3 occasions when we had it bad (approx 4 inches laying and some drifting). On all trips the car was absoloutely fine. The ploughs hadnt been through and there was no gritting done (as usual!). It was strange sailing past front wheel drive econo boxes and even a couple of Diso's in a rear drive big engined automatic!

I guess the long and the short of it is - absoloutely any car - even a BMW! - is totally fine in all weathers if you change the tyres.
