I use all season tyres, it never snows in the Mediterranean lol :P just got me a set of Nexen N'blue eco's this week though as the ones that came with the car when I bought it where sliding and skidding all around the place, at least now I can drive safely in the rain plus they were a bargain at 220 euros for 4 new tyres including installation and wheel balancing :P

ps. my car

All seasons on the focus.

Saab came with icebears (i think that's how its spelt) winters, 2 were out of shape so that has firestone firehawks now.

S70 has dunlop sportmax.

Got some near slicks coming for the bike, I don't think they will be much good in the cold\wet.

I've never had winter tyres or even considered them but so far this Autumn they've cropped up everywhere. Are they really worth it in the UK?

depends how far away you live from a city. I know a few people who have them who live out in the countryside and swear by them.
