I think you’d lose on both counts..Chgperformance wrote: ↑Mon Jan 21, 2019 5:38 pmI wonder where you would stand then, two choices. Tyres with snow markings but Van tyres, or non van tyres but no snow markings?
Third option is what sounds like has been followed - 195/70R14 winter car tyres. It’s a size shared with older Mercs and BMWs hence why they’re available (at a price).
Having had the cheapest Chinese (but correctly rated) winter tyres in Germany they were still magnitudes better than the summer tyres that were on when the snow hit in a hurry. Not on a Scimitar, but a 180bhp hot hatch with an oddball tyre size so again, choice was very limited. It also kept me on the right side of the German “advice” should I have been stopped (and I was on a spot check - UK plates and the steering wheel on the other side are a bit of a giveaway).
