Let's see your winter tyre setup

Would like to see pics of your winter tires and wheels.

Thanks!

Here's mine: Nokia 235/45 spikes in TSW trackstar 17" wheels.




Spacers are not road legal here It really needs some though.

You should switch to M+S tires, you would be surprised how incredible it would handle.

spacers not legal? How can a police officer tell? If your car needs state inspection is a different story (safety), but still spacers improve handling and make the car more stable.

Wheel Spacers make your existing tires and wheels appear wider by moving the wheel out from the hub, providing both performance and appearance improvements. Whether you want improved handling, increased safety, or simply desire your car to make a statement about your individual style. H&R website

Agreed! It is stupid law!
We have a yearly inspection in here, where spacers are easily noticed.
Also police officers are inspecting modified cars quite effectively in normal traffic stops. I know people do use spacers in here also, but i just don't have so much money to spend to tickets...
