    Default Winter tyres and insurance

    After the horror stories about insurance companies bumping premiums up if you fit winter tyres, I thought I'd check mine.

    Not a problem ( Insure - underwritten by Hastings )

    Has anyone running winter tyres actually had an issue with premiums, or is this the press going off on one ?

    The tyres are irrelevant to the insurance company, as long as they are black round and legal they couldn't care less, different wheels can make a difference though
