Where were you Tony?mmm-five wrote: ↑Mon Nov 06, 2017 3:22 pmI've only ever had summer tyres on my Z4MC.
Not had a problem with it in cold/light snow, nor running around the Nurburgring at 2ºc. BUT, I will take it easy and will constantly check levels of grip by braking & accelerating in a straight line. This morning was 3ºc when I left (5am) and the car didn't do any lairy slides coming out of the drive, or around roundabouts.*
Ice is another matter and even winter tyres won't help out there - unless you're using studded tyres.
However, if the weather looks terrible (i.e. more than an inch of snow) then I'll take the Alfa over the Zed any day - although only due to the risk of someone else ploughing into me in the snow/ice - as the Alfa's worth buttons.
The Alfa runs Michelin Cross-Climates all year round (which is what they're designed for).
* although I'm not sure the car liked the early start after a week of driving at the Ring, as it got 30 miles before getting into a tizz and pulling all electrical power. Had to slowly shuffle across 4 lanes of the M6 to the hard shoulder with no engine or electrical power (no indicators, brake lights, hazards, headlights either).
