so 2day coming outta supermarket ground was wet from rain etc wasnt going too fast or anything but just started drifting noticed this another time too...is this the norm with r/w drive no not unless you want your car to do it ...i mean my tyres look bout halfway worn maybe 60 %..i dread to think what its gunna be like when the frost and snow sets in. id put money on it the tyres are cheap chinease rubbish a decent tyre with 30% thread will perform better than a cheap tyre brand new ..how much do winter tyres cost im rocking 18"s at the mo...what am i lookin at paying i assume about the price of a 2001 yaris?all suggestions appreciated :) my advice would be to pick up a cheap set of 15 or 16's and slap part worn snow tyres on them should be achievable for 2-250e

Were the 18s bought with these tyres???

If they were, more than likely they are just cheap ditch finders :eek::p



If you've decent tyres, there's no real worries of a 316 getting you into trouble un-expectantly especially if its on 18s :D

Winter tyres in anything bigger than 16" are expensive. Also the wider they are the less effective they are in snow/ice. Narrow tyres have more grip on snow/ice than wider tyres.
