Not on this model but my general view of all seasons is that they are great if you canít be bothered to get a winter setup or if you only get light snow. Altho they are garbage on ice, some countries actually donít even allow studded winter tyres namely Poland, Germany and maybe some others? They are also banned on certain streets of Stockholm here in Sweden which makes me think they should be safe at least. Studded makes more noice which sucks. So thatís the long answer sorry it got a bit of of hand Short answer:They suck donít use them. At least where I live.

+1, separate summers and winters, every time, on all my cars - except my Coupe, 'cos it only comes out to play in summertime . Anything else is a compromise where I live/drive.

Autos Autos everywhere...
(1) 2015 Tesla Model S: (was 85D, now 90D ). Silent and deadly, and very fast... But not as fast as Ian's M3P-
(2) 2002 D2 S8 Final Edition: Bulletproof and faultless: Brilliant Black with Extended (Red!) Leather. Three-times winner of Best D2 1st prize
(3) 1997 Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo: Scots (! ) Green. Fragile, but beautiful.
(4) 2010 Fiat Panda 100HP. White Pandamonium (Final Edition!!). Pure old-fashioned 6-speed go-karting.
