Default Winter tyres - 6th October 2016, 07:04 AM

I am searching for some advice and or experience with winter tyres on the clubman s f54. What size do you recommend, and how does she react to snow and ice with 17 rims and tyres? Would love some advice, looking at the Net spoke 519 17 w/ dunlop or bridge spoke 17 528 w/ pirelli :)

I'd run Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2s or Goodyear Ultragrip 8s on whatever second hand 17s you can pick up for your MINI.

I've ran continental TS830 on my last 4 cars. Picked up a 2nd hand set for the mini last year and have ran them since.
I rate them highly, used them on my 123d in heavy snow up a steep incline with no issues.

Thank you, hoping to make my way up to Scotland, do some winter mountaineering. Perhaps the continentals will bring me there.
