We're going to Germany to see the in-laws for Christmas and then going skiing afterwards. I'm trying to find out what we'll need in the way of winter tyres/snow chains. I've seen reliable official websites that state you don't need winter tyres by law although they're clearly a good idea.
My main question is regarding chains - I believe fitting standard snowchains will trash the rims - does anyone know of any chains that could be fitted to the 20'' alloys on an RS6 that wouldn't damage the alloys?
If you all shout back that for even considering not having winter tyres (given the four-wheel drive nature of the quattro) then I must be as thick as a plank then fair enough - but I'd value your opinions. Am I destined to have to get winter tyres and snow chains?
Also, any recommendations for winter tyres? I've had a hunt through the "search" function - just wondering if anyone had any experience with the new RS6 & this issue (for info we've got ceramic brakes)
Thanks in advance,
