as far as i'm aware, my insurance details only say aftermarket wheels so it shouldnt matter.

Have something to contribute?

they dont need to ask Aaron, they tend to assume you have all round tyres, but if you have an accident and they see you have winter tyres, it could invalidate your insurance policy...


Mainly because no car would (by standard) leave the factory with winter tyres on, they tend to be an all rounder, so changing this, means that you have modified the vehicle.


You would really need to have a scrupulous insurer to suffer this, but it can and does happen.

Not what you're looking for?
