Have you considered picking up a snow chain set for your car?
With winters in the United Kingdom starting to get increasingly troublesome for motorists, it is now recommended that drivers have some sort of additional winter safety system in place in order to get them safely to their destination. However, not everyone can afford to splash out on potentially expensive winter tyres, which can often cost in excess of £500 for a full set.
Rather than simply braving it out with their all weather tyres, which we definitely don't recommend if the coming winters are going to be anything like the last few, the main alternative for you to consider is picking up a snow chain set for your car.
While there are many people out there who will tell you that snow chains aren't all that helpful, they can really make a huge difference for slippery underfoot conditions. If your commute is often blighted by icy conditions and snow fall, then a snow chain set can really make your life a lot better.
There are a number of different kinds of snow chain sets available for modern cars, but they all work in roughly the same way. Essentially, they are sleeves of chain, or perhaps soft spikes, that sit over the wheel in order to afford it more traction in the snow and on the ice.
You can check how much a snow chain set will cost you for your particular make and model of car by checking out either snowchains.co.uk or roofbox.co.uk/snow-chains. If you're not sure which kind you're looking for, both sites have a number of expert staff who will be only happy to help you kit your car out for the winter months ahead.
