    I have bitten the bullet and ordered a set of 19 inch PA4’s. Waited a month for my dealer to quote me for the sparkle silver 18’s with winter tyres, but seems they can’t send a quote by email. Hey ho, i’ve given the money to a tyre company that I trust. Anyone used these tyres? Same presssures or a touch softer ? Please advise

    Weathers getting rather crappy up in rural North Yorkshire. So I ordered a set of PA4’s, will see how they perform.

    Got a cracking deal from the boss, Ian Brown Tyres Ltd. He looks after his staff 🙂

    Are winter tyres really necessary for everyone? My car is used as a second car and always garaged when not in use. It covers around 4,500 normal road miles/year and has the OEM tyres. For Ford to state in the owners manual that the OEM tryes are not recommended for use below 7 degC just seems ridiculous. I won’t be changing mine. Comments anyone.

    Mines a daily and was not too good in the snow/slush last year. So for me, yes. Another week before delivery though to get them at cost.

    @9designs – Wouldn’t dream of it generally unless it was totally unavoidable of course.

    @71-bda – Yes I suppose we are relatively lucky weather wise here in the South therefore I assume you’re not a fan either bda for using winter tyres.

    Must admit my PA4s have  been on for weeks now and due to the mild weather i haven’t felt the full benefits yet. Car still feels good to drive and push a little as well. I think next year if finances allow, i will get the winter tyres fitted to a second set of wheels so that i can swap them at short notice.

    As i use the car everyday i’m still happy to have them on as i’m sure the weather will turn colder at the end of the year and into 2019.
