Are you shod for winter?

Given that the unseasonal weather is absolutely and definitely coming to an end this week, who has their winter tyres on already?

Poll coming

Re: Are you shod for winter?

Maybe option between "next week" and "won't bother" would be good

I find that the Swiss tend to get their tyres done all at the same time, making it a nightmare. I usually wait until it's far too late and then never have trouble getting an appointment...

My husband did both cars on Saturday with the help of our 5 year old who I am sure only wanted to help to see just how dirty he could get!

Re: Are you shod for winter?

I'm booked in next week (1st time in Switzerland).

So long as I beat the first snow (and the big rush of everyone else...)

Where is the option for: "I take the train instead of worrying about it"?

Re: Are you shod for winter?

Ok, just in case this ends up in a duplicate discussion I just wanted to point out to everyone that if you have questions about winter tyres etc, we have a couple of threads running already.

If you have a question about where to buy winter tyres, or where to get them changed, go to this thread.

If you have a question related to the legal aspects of winter tyres, like if you really need them, if you have an accident when you don't have them will you get in trouble, etc. then go this thread.

If you want to have a light hearted discussion about whether you've put your tyres on or not, then stay here on this thread!

(soonich - I moved your post over to the correct thread)

Re: Are you shod for winter?

I wont bother just yet I think its still to warm no -15s for it to settle on the road and freeze. But I will be putting the skis in for a sevice, Jan will soon be here. But they do say winter tyres work better than summer tyres bellow 10 Deg.

Mark I used to leave it to late like you, and get the look is this guy real asking to fit Winter tyres in a snow storm, Its got to be worth doing just for the wind up value.
