I was just thinking again about tyres when Shona's brand new replacement land rover broke down with in 18 days and returned for a second replacement. They did not even argue they just said we will get Land Rover to get you another one. You just could not make it up!
The loan car is an all singing and dancing discovery and surprisingly has a set of the next generation all season tyres which have a snow flake and leaf emblem on them. Haven't taken it down the farm yet so no idea how they will perform off road. Maybe we should just keep this one as it seems to work and not gamble with a third new one.
Anyway was reading this article www.evo.co.uk/features/13761/best-winter-tyres-2018
Quite up to date 2018 but does not have the tyres we have on the loan car.
And for anyone that is interested, just pulled the data off the weather station back to December 2016 to see the average temperatures here in Aviemore. It shows graphically when the temps are below7oC, best time for winter tyres.
