You may well consider having a good set of either year-round or winter tyres fitted. The Dutch Company - Vredestein (see TYRES) has a UK centre and supplies tyre garage throughout the country. Such a set of tyres would obviously prove useful in the winter months in the UK and could well see you through snowy conditions without the need to fit chains (even if they must be carried by law!)
