Maybe he'll reply and confirm what he said. If this is true, then it's possible to drive the Scandinavian roads on M+S tyres that pass police inspection, but are in reality "all-season" tyres, which would be not at all appropriate for a heavy winter. But I seriously doubt that he's right. Robert > > -- > Arne Adli > '96 Saab 900 SE Turbo
