    Stay away from the the flakes. You'll regret it if you go down that route.

    I've covered 30k miles in my car with snowies on and never had an issue... No cracks or anything and I have hit a few potholes and had the car absolutely loaded with weight quite often too...

    Keep the tyre pressures up and replace your shocks/springs BEFORE they wear out and don't see what the fuss is about
