    Winter Tyres and Chris Knott Hi, I'm often asked on club forums (and Facebook groups) about switching to winter wheels/tyres and whether an insurer will charge extra if you do. As it's getting to that time of year again I thought I'd just reassure any Chris Knott clients that the insurers we...
