    Winter Tyres in EU - HELP!

    I am shortly travelling to Austria for skiing and cannot find any Winter tyres in the UK> Both the 18 and 19inch Pirelli's and Contis seem to be out of stock! Does anyone in N France, Belgium, S Germany, Switzerland or Austria know where I could get some? Prefer the Pirelli Snowsport 240 19 inch, but would be prepared to go for the 18 inchers (Contis or Pirellis) if necessary.

    Thanks!

    The VR speed rated Nokian WR AWPs are awesome- I'm laughing while making donuts and slamming to stops in big empty icy/snowed-in parking lots up at Tahoe. They are the new generation high performnce " snowflake on mountain " symboled tires - not "all-weather M+S" stuff that doesn't work . In dry conditions these are quieter than summer rubber and handle almost as well

    I have the Nokian, but killed the back tyres in 5000km!!!!!

    When I got them , there was no stock problem. Check Porsche Switzerland .... the dealer/importor/distributor is called AMAG and they are all over the country. Try to call them....

    Re: Winter Tyres in EU - HELP!

    Thanks Gnil. Am passing thru Switzerland on the way to Sankt Anton, so may be able to swap tyres there. I'll call Porsche Switzerland for the Nokian's tomorrow. Re mileage sorry to hear that they wear so quick. I guess important to only drive them in snow!

    Could you let me know the full spec for your tyre, please?

    Thanks,

    SoS.
