I'm thinking of getting some for my car over the winter months... Cheaper than the winter tyre option and easy to put on/take off...

i struggled mainly with the traction control last year, i had continental sport contact tyres, which are awful for snow as they only have ribs going round the tyre, not across... so dont grip anything! as soon as i got a bit of movement the traction control would kick in and all momentum would be lost and i'd stop.. Unfortuantely i cant turn off traction control!!

Are you sure that you can't turn off Traction Control vis 'Settings' and 'Driver Assist'?
My handbook seems to suggest that you can although I have not put it to the test!

In settings I can go to ESP that's it..

Don't think I needed them at all last year as we got away pretty lightly compared to the previous two winters.
As said, they shred in no time on tarmac, but for the very few instances where I had to use them, I found them pretty handy.
We all know that the most important factor, in all driving but especially winter conditions, is the driver and technique employed.
Still tempted though to pick up a set of steelies with winter rubber on them and get the ST 18s off for a few months. Would be an excuse for a refurb then too, haha!
