Good job you had the four wheel drive and them tyres with such important journeys to make, touching on this subject and speaking as someone who has gone through radiation treatment last year a little tip I can give you and your good lady is stay positive and don’t dwell on it, easy to say but harder to do, the minute you start thinking the worse you both become more stressed and she will make herself ill. Good luck with the rest of her treatment 👍This last week I've never been more grateful for the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons tyres I've banged on about for the last couple of years. Here in the bottom righthand corner of Boris Kingdom Storm Darcy has been playing merry he11 with the roads and unfortunately I have to make a 60-mile round trip daily this week, ferrying Mrs G to and from hospital. Yesterday we had the lot, driving snow, packed snow, drifts and black ice, at various points, and apart from the odd moment of unusual interest on black ice the car simply stayed planted, went where it was pointed and gripped surprisingly well in all conditions.
With the advent of good all-seasons tyres from Goodyear, Michelin and others it's now hard to argue for anything else for UK use. They don't even carry that much pf a price premium now.
